Coordinate with the Project Team
Once you've gotten funding for the site and have identified your Web production team, you're ready to begin pre-production. Your lead content person, lead graphic designer, and lead Web developer should all participate in this phase. These people should maintain communication with some of their counterparts on the video production team to be sure that any materials related to the video that have an impact on the Web site are compatible and available when the time to use them comes.
Some considerations to keep in mind:
- Are research materials, transcripts, and annotated logs accessible in some way to the Web team?
- Can the Web team see treatments/rough cuts/fine cuts of the video?
- Do third-party materials rights clearances, appearance or location releases, and talent agreements cover use of relevant material on the Web? If not, are reasonable options available to the Web team (either to re-clear or find alternate materials)?
- Are graphic design decisions being made so that key elements (fonts, logos, color) are compatible with Web display?
