How do you spend your time on a shoot?


Imagine that we’re on-location, shooting interviews for your video. While we would love to spend the entire day filming, generally it’s not possible. Why? There’s a lot of other things that have to happen before you hear me shout, “Action”! Here’s an example from a recent out-of-town shoot for a healthcare client. This will give you an idea of how we spend our time on a typical video shoot.

A Typical Shoot Schedule

  1. Load up – 20 minutes

  2. Travel – 15 – 30 minutes

  3. Unload – 20 minutes

  4. Move – 15 – 30 minutes

  5. Set up – 45 mins – 2 hours

  6. Shoot – 30 minutes – 1 hour per person

  7. Reset – 45 minutes

  8. Shoot – 30 minutes – 1 hour per person

  9. Pack up – the equipment – 30 mins

  10. Move – 15 – 30 minutes

  11. Load up – 20 minutes

  12. Travel to lunch

  13. Lunch – 45 – 60 minutes

  14. Travel – 15 – 30 minutes

  15. Repeat

While every project is different, this is a good idea of what it takes and a reminder that there’s a lot of physical preparation that has to happen before we can actually begin videotaping.
