Proper planning and preparation prevents piss poor performance.
It’s something that I first came across in a military context, but at the same time is something that I feel applies to many, many situations. The Creative Breaks project that I’m working on being just one of them.
You might think that three months to make a five-minute short film was plenty of time. Believe me when I say it really isn’t! With editing, planning, filming, adding music, storyboarding and the million and one other things that need doing; three months really is no time at all!
So if there is one time that the old adage is more important than ever in my work, it’s now.
