How to Run a Production
As you will appreciate, the key to organising anything is in the planning! It's especially crucial where budgets are limited, if indeed there is a budget at all. Planning ensures you get the most out of the resources you have available to you and achieve a smooth production run no matter how small or large your project is.
In this section we have a breakdown of the key elements of going into production once you have a green light for an idea. It’s a guide through how these elements link up and their purpose. Downloadable templates are available for you to use and make your own.

It helps you and us sort out thoughts/plans and highlights any possible issues that might arise.
