Creating a Project Outline

Creating an Outline

Don’t Skip This Step!

Creating a project outline is similar to creating any sort of outline; think of the points you want to make and how you support those points. This may be simple for many of you, but skipping the process of creating a project outline can cost you time and money in video productions.

It is typically said that at least 1/3 of your time on a project should be spent in planning your project. The more carefully you plan your project, the smoother the production will go… And production is expensive and time-consuming.

So, take the time to make an outline before diving into your project. You will thank yourself for it later.

Outlines can be simple or complicated. The sample below is a simple outline I used for the next lesson.
