2.1. Planning Your Shoot

You might think that planning your shoot just involves giving your actors their scripts, stage directions, and a chance to rehearse, but that's just the tip of the iceberg!

2.1.1. Arranging the venue

Suppose that you're chronicling the nuptials of someone you really wish to please with your effort: Maybe they're paying you, or maybe you're giving them this effort as your wedding gift. The first things you need to consider are where you can set up, whether you can get by with only one camera angle (yeah, right!), where the camera(s) need to be positioned, where the microphone(s) need to be located, how much control you have over the lighting and its position, and whether auxiliary power is available without interfering with the event. (Power cords tripping the ushers, guests, or bridal party are sure to ruin things.)
