The “principles of production” refer to all the things you need to do to make a video. That includes all the steps you need to go through to get from concept to delivery, and all the rules of best practice that will help you produce something good.

We’re currently working on a lengthy guide to video production for this page that will cover all these things, as well as tips on how to make your life easier and some of the issues involved with copyright.

While we’re doing that, please explore here for a collection of useful tips, links, documents, and infographics that will help you in your productions.
