Let’s face it; production work takes time. But when you can develop a sense for what your client might need in advance, the time can be greatly reduced. When we can get an idea of where a production is heading, we can have elements pulled and ready for decision making. This sometimes cuts production time considerably. Getting a script or storyboard well ahead of the production date and a chance to discuss that script with the client can make it so much easier to have options ready. Knowing our clients, listening to them, getting a clear understanding of their goals helps us to stay ahead of them.
