Chapter SixManaging Resources

“Of all the things I’ve done, the most vital is coordinating the talents of those who work for us and pointing them towards a certain goal.”

Walt Disney

Managing resources means keeping track of multiple priorities at the same time. On a day-to-day level, this means establishing organizational habits, for yourself and your production office team to stay on track. Routine, structure and checklists are a means to stay on top of the schedule and budget. However you do it, set up a systematic way to keep the project on time, evaluate today, tomorrow, the next week of shooting, then the next.
