Online Course/Program Videos Countdown Checklist

8 weeks to a successful Online Course/Program Videos shoot 

Your Filming Date:
October 12th, 2019

Congratulations again on making the commitment to have your Online Program Videos produced, filmed, and edited by Geffner Productions!

Just so you know exactly what to expect, below you’ll find a Countdown Checklist (along with some helpful links) that highlights all of the different elements of your video pre-production process that we will be working through together in the coming weeks.

There is a lot of useful information included below, and we will, of course, be here to guide you every step of the way, and to answer any questions you have as they come up.

For a “big picture” understanding of the main categories we’ll need to discuss together, click here for a more general overview of the entire Online Course/Program Video process.

The good news is you don’t need to worry about all of this information at one time. We are going to take it step-by-step, and guide you on the most important things to focus on all along the way, so that we can try to eliminate as much of the overwhelm for you as possible.

In the descriptions below, you will see text that is highlighted in blue. Click on those links to be taken to a separate page to learn more about that specific topic.
