To begin, you’ll want to develop a creative brief, then identify the roles people will play during production. You need to assign tasks to different people so that your production is eifficient. Finally, you should familiarize yourself with the three phases of production.

Understanding the three phases of production is really critical if you’ve never made a video before.

Pre-production is everything you do before you turn on the camera, or turn on the lights, or before you create any type of graphic imagery.

Production involves the actual making of the assets. This could mean rolling out the camera and recording video or having an artist create some type of animated asset that will then get used in the video.

Post-production is where you take the produced assets and employ an editor or a talented motion graphic artist to turn them into a final video that satisfies the business need.
