Hello Fellow Cinematographers!
I come to you bearing some suggestions and advice for planning and preproduction for DPing narratives.
So as I am in the midst of preproduction of doing cinematography for my next narrative I have realized that I am trying to find the best, organized way to collect, manage and maintain all my ideas, thoughts, etc onto my computer. Right now it’s a mess. Currently I have the script on PDF Preview (Mac) and I’m making notes on that and then making the same notes on a notepad. I’m also separately writing down questions about extraneous ideas on Notes app on my Mac. Are there programs you guys and gals use that help with the visualization and organization process for DP pre-prod?
I also use MindNode and Shot Designer.
Thank you all! Film long and Prosper.
