And yes, there is much we can achieve through post, however is it really as good, cost effective or productive as fixing it up on set?[/heading][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”in_container” full_screen_row_position=”middle” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” overlay_strength=”0.3″][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ width=”1/1″ tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default”][vc_column_text]So are you a fix it in post or fix it on set kinda person?[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”in_container” full_screen_row_position=”middle” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” top_padding=”40″ overlay_strength=”0.3″][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ width=”1/1″ tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default”][vc_column_text]After spending some time on the set of independent films, it’s not hard to understand why so many basics can get either be missed or just shortcut. Driven by a tight budget, limited time, crew and equipment all factored to the smallest increment- in order to cram as much into the production as possible.

It’s perhaps too tight in some situations, resulting in compromise and decisions being made on-set in order to keep the schedule on track and to avoid the real prospect of a mutiny.

So is there a smarter or different way to work?

Recently I participated in a seminar with Dov Simens who’s produced a significant number of low budget features, and he presented some very clear guidelines which resounded and confirmed many of my experiences and thoughts. Although I’m a post guy existing at the end of the pipeline, I see and feel every bump that the feature has gone through… so here are a few thoughts.

These are just some real basic ideas and thoughts from our experiences and conversations with fellow filmmakers.

For us, we feel strongly about being accountable and conscientious with every dollar being spent on a screen budget and struggle when we see unnecessary resources wasted due to resolvable problems.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”in_container” full_screen_row_position=”middle” scene_position=”center” text_color=”light” text_align=”left” bottom_padding=”40″ overlay_strength=”0.3″][vc_column boxed=”true” centered_text=”true” column_padding=”padding-5-percent” column_padding_position=”all” background_color=”#bf0033″ background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ width=”1/2″ tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default”][heading subtitle=”enter your email address and we’ll send it straight to you.”]Get the Agile Post Dailies cost overview here[/heading][vc_column_text][formidable id=”15″ title=”0″ description=”0″][/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column boxed=”true” centered_text=”true” column_padding=”padding-5-percent” column_padding_position=”all” background_color=”#5f9149″ background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ width=”1/2″ tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default”][heading]For a bit of fun… buy the “Fix it On-Set” Shirt[/heading][vc_column_text]
