I have a screenplay and locations all picked out, and I know what I want from actors - yet it seems "plunging" into a project is a mistake. Frankly, the technology jargon is a lot to swallow. I'm thinking of filming for a day, then process the film, go all through post production, etc, as if my two or three reels were the finished product.

Is that a sound idea?

Sure, design a one-day shoot as a test and take it through post. Since the point is to learn the steps through post, keep it a very short project, only one or two minutes long.
