The PDF below is a document for you if:

  •  you’re in a non-film making class where the professor has given you an assignment to create a video and you don’t know how to proceed. 
  • the professor has given very broad guidelines for the project and left the interpretation up to you.  
  • you’re making a “live-action” video, which means you’re filming actors and locations.
  • you’re making a documentary or “movie clip compilation”-style project, where you are using existing footage you didn’t film to create your project.
  • you’re concerned about completing the assignment, given that you have other classes, assignments, and commitments.
  • you’re working with a group. If you’re working on your own, you will still find valuable information here.
