Develop a Production Plan
The first step to creating a DVD is to prepare a meticulous production plan. Your plan should necessarily consider the following points:
- The kind of video you wish to create
- The target audience
- The equipment you would be requiring and where or how you would have access to them
- The extras you would re requiring for developing the fitness video such as exercisers / models, props or music (and licenses).
- Length of the video or the exact time-span you have in mind, for the fitness regime.
Next step is to decide how the overall product should look like and then you must plan accordingly.
Find a Production Company
Once you have chalked out a plan, identify a reputed production company and ask them for an estimate based on your specific requirements. Compare the prices. Keep in mind that the cost of CD replication Sydney or making copies for distribution or resale is not included in the overall production costs. For that you would need to pay reproduction costs. Do not forget to include reproduction costs in your overall budget for this particular project.
Get Ready to Shoot
Check everything well on time before the shoot commences. Make sure that you have all the required equipment and props, the script should be ready and the scene schedule should be ready to aid the camera person. Double check everything.
See if the filming area is set up just the way you wanted. Make sure that the lighting, timing, camera angles as well as movements are exactly as you had planned. Ensure that few takes are done for every segment so that there is some extra footage for editing purposes.
Editing the Material
The production company would send you a copy containing usable footage so that you can review. You need to carefully watch the footage so that you can decide what shots, takes and camera angles should be used in your fitness DVD and accordingly inform the editor.
Review carefully the first draft sent to you by the editor and send him your feedback. Once the editing process is done and you have approved the packaging and the program, you could go ahead and get in touch with a replication company for copies. You could then begin selling your fitness DVD.
Distributing the DVD
Look for a reliable CD replication Sydney and place your order. When the DVD replication Sydney sends you the required number of copies, you could start selling your DVD through the website or your own studio. You should come up with an extensive marketing list.
