Organising a Clue Content filming day

Organising a successful Clue Content filming day involves meticulous planning and coordination. It involves managing a production team, videographers, location, food and drinks for the day and most importantly the clients attending.

Here’s a step-by-step guide to ensure everything runs smoothly, from booking your videographer to wrapping up the shoot.

Step 1: Book the Videographer

The first step is to book a skilled videographer. Make sure they have the necessary equipment for the shoot. This includes cameras, sound equipment, and any other specialised gear needed for your specific filming requirements.

Step 2: Secure the Venue

Next, book a venue that meets all your needs. Ensure the venue has enough space for all clients to film separately, avoiding any repetitive backgrounds or settings. Additionally, confirm that the venue fits within your budget constraints.

Step 3: Arrange Makeup Artists

Book makeup artists and inform them about the filming day details. Provide the makeup artists with the number of clients they will be working with and their different skin tones to ensure they bring the appropriate products and tools.

Step 4: Communicate with Clients

Send out emails to all clients, informing them of the date, time, and location of the shoot. Clear communication is crucial to ensure everyone is on the same page. You can access some of our clients testimonials from their experience with Clue Content through this link HERE

Step 5: Internal Coordination

Draft an internal email for the team and the videographer. Include all necessary details such as the schedule, location, and a rundown of the day’s events. This will help everyone understand their roles and responsibilities, send out a week before filming.

Organising a filming day requires attention to detail and effective communication. By following these steps in Clue, we can ensure a well-coordinated and successful shoot. And remember, at the end of the day, when the filming wraps up, take a moment to celebrate the hard work and creativity that went into making it all happen. We sometimes do this just through sitting and talking to our clients about how they found the day.
