Wow, I find it hard planning out a 20 minute video. I don't think I could ever pull off something that large in scale. Well done to you NightBeauty.
How about reshoots/pick ups or additional scenes you may need ? I always find that I need some type of small shot or even larger scene while editing the final project. Maybe thats my poor planning but with Justice League I added several small action set pieces to make the battle with Two Face and his goons more exciting. I felt it needed a little more action and to be a bit longer. Usually I hate doing this but sometimes it has to be done.
Hey Final! Its something that I end up doing quite naturally. I write an entire 30 page handbook of the character backstories, their traits, and what it would be like for them to meet each other at a simple party. Then I write the plot, and the script. And it all seems to come together that way. I will develop the movie directly off the plan. The run time seems to just get born from there! To answer your question, I do have to re-shoot some scenes if I think they are not up to NightBeauty Pictures standard. Or if they get corrupted, (which has happened >_>) I make changes to a scene, or the character MP faces have that disfigured bug. (which I am not going to lie, even with it being an improvement over The Hunt, you will still see it in The Takeover. I also may wan't to just try different angles and approaches to a scene. If I had to make a suggestion, I would write separate storyboard, and a map guide to your movie sets and scenes, especially if its an action or fast paced scene. It will really help you in the long run. My grandad told me a special thing, "Something thats planned, will always be better, even if its just slightly, than something unplanned" So thats what I do! I also find I have to make sure that an action score music, like GTA V Haze of Patriotic Fervour. Or, North Yankton memories, I have to time it to be in time with changes in the scene, and make sure the scene dosen't go over or below the song duration. (Even though sometimes I will extend a part of the song to make it last longer) But all of these things I have been doing with The Takeover! Its rendering as we speak, so you will see for yourself what I have been up to on and off since the end of April.. Stay safe and well buddy!
