A realistic schedule is not only an integral part of the budgeting process–determining the number of shoot days and required elements–but is the platform on which the success of the shoot is built. Thousands of key elements must turn up to the right place at the right time every single shoot day and a missing piece of the puzzle may end up with an incomplete scene. Proper scheduling is essential to production! 

This course will show you the process of creating a script breakdown, organizing strips, and how to utilize Movie Magic Scheduling software. Movie Magic, the industry standard for film scheduling, enables you to input and track script elements like actors, locations, props, costumes, special effects, stunts, and more, allowing you to fully organize your film finances and create the most efficient schedule for production.
