Last week I talked about how much video and photo information I have to process. There are lots of things that can be done, from delegating to not saying yes in the first place, to doing a better job of planning the production in the first place.
One of the paralyzing things for me is that I have different things I want to do with the images (website, youtube, videos for church services, video loops for kiosks) and I use four different cameras and I work on three different computers. Simplifying that stream isn’t a possibility. (I like to be able to use three cameras even without a switcher) But what I realized yesterday is this, documenting the production stream is a possibility.
On my whiteboard right now is the beginning of a chart:
Videoloop of photos => Nero Vision
Photos on website => step 1,
I realized that if I document how to get to each of the products I need from each of the inputs I use, I won’t have to figure that out every time.
You, of course, know this. You, of course, have looked at all the tasks you perform sporadically and have created decision-trees or process diagrams for yourself. So that you don’t have to make choices. You can make content.
Me? I’m just starting. But it’s simpler already.
