You’ve got a great team that knows how to produce amazing content, this is the easy part of video production. The tricky part is getting the various different team members working seamlessly together to create that amazing content in a timely, scheduled manner.

The Master Production Video Plan

Every project your company sets up on Production Hero can be found in the Master Plan. The Master Plan is an overview of everything your company has going on, all the video productions currently and those coming up. It gives you a real-time overview of everything that’s going on, in every video production. This Master Plan allows you and your team members to anticipate bottlenecks and adjust your plan accordingly. This lets you optimize your time and focus on creating content, not on updating schedules and fixing issues.

You might be wondering how Production Hero can save you money. Easily! And in so many ways! With the Master Plan overview, you can see all the video productions your company is currently working on. Not only can you get a count on these projects but you can see when different projects are scheduled to complete work. This means if you’ve got several projects shooting on the same day you know if you’ll need to rent additional equipment or reorganize the schedule. You can also see end dates, so you’ll know when you’re wrapping up and ready to take on more projects. This helps so you never lose momentum and keep everything running smoothly.
