Pre-production

Studio LANET PRODUCTION in Kyiv carries out professional full-cycle video production. Pre-production is the very first, preparatory and most important stage before the start of the video shooting process. At this stage, it is necessary to determine the key tasks, the main goals and requirements of the project; hear from the customer his ideas and expectations from the finished video; come up with several creative concepts and use the focus group to choose the best one; write a detailed director's script; calculate the project budget; make a shooting plan.The pre-production process from LANET PRODUCTION specialists includes the following stages of preparation for the shooting process:

  • Development of several versions of the concepts of the commercial and approval of the most successful video concept.
  • Writing and approving the director’s script of the commercial which will most accurately embody the conceptual idea of your project and will become the basis for further production.
  • Making a list of characters; detailed characterization. Creation and approval of preliminary storyboards and animatics for the future video. This is necessary in order to get the most complete visualization of the final result. A well-designed storyboard is a thoughtful sequence of drawings that are a plot sketch depicting the main characters and the scene of your story. Such methods of project visualization will help the crew and the customer speak the same language and make sure of mutual understanding and the same presentation of the final video product. An animatic is the same storyboard but in an animated format and with draft sound engineering.
  • Drawing up and approval of the budget of the video. The stage at which financial details are negotiated.
  • Search for actors who perfectly convey character types; casting.
  • Search and selection of locations that are most suitable for the director's script.
  • Scheduling and filming plans.
  • Writing copyright music by our sound engineer if it is necessary for the concept of video.
  • Conducting pre-production meeting – meetings with the customer to discuss and approve key points of the project. At this meeting representatives of the production team and the customer specify all the details of the future video. The last such meeting completes the pre-production phase and the team can proceed to the next stage of video production – filming.
