Beginning outlining a script
Develop storyboards to visually illustrate the outline
Refine script to communicate content effectively
Capture footage based on storyboard and shot list
Work within real-life spaces and time constraints
Begin assembling footage
Develop rough, then finer cuts based on collaborator feedback
Incorporate any effects or media
