Contingency Plan

I will need to consider alternative options to many aspects of my production, as there is always the chance things could go wrong, which is why a contingency plan is essential for my production planning. Below I have listed some issues and how they can be combatted or otherwise changed in order for production to carry on, I have also included a rating depending on how easy or difficult it will be to resolve the issue. Key: (Note: the first three ratings will not directly affect production/ post production) VE- Very Easy, can be sorted the same day E- Easy, can be sorted same day M- Moderate, can possible be sorted same day but may have a delay MD- Moderately Difficult, could cause a delay to filming/editing D- Difficult, will directly affect filming and may cause production date to be moved I- Implausible, a completely new plan will be needed

Issue Member of production crew is unable to make filming. TV Studio is unavailable due to double booking

Ease of Compromise E

Solution I will make sure to have a backup crew member in the event of crew sickness or an emergency. I do have an idea of setting up a mini studio in my clients house, which I could do by using a white sheet in order to put effects in later. To do this however I will need to make sure I can book out the appropriate camera and lighting equipment. Alternatively I could move filming to another day, providing I am not stuck for time. I can take the equipment back to college and explain to the appropriate person whats happened and swap it for another. In case this does happen, I plan to load as much footage into my editing suite as possible and as soon after filming as possible, this way I will have two copies of raw footage. This would probably be the worst possible scenario I come across. If this happens I will need to find a new client as soon as possible so as to pass the

unit. If two cameras are functioning properly, I would be able to compromise and use them to the best of my ability. If two cameras are out of action, again I will try to use the one camera which is working in order to get a variety of shots, which can be done as the cameras can be moved around on wheels. There are ways I can prevent this, for example by saving at regular intervals during editing. If this happens before I am able to save then I will be sure, if the programme freezes for example, to make a note of the location of what edit and where it is on the time code, to save me a little bit of time when I redo the editing.
