Outline the podcast

Three months before

One month before

  • Pre-podcast meeting: discuss the outline of the podcast and where the filming is to take place
  • If the voice-over is a live interview, the Unit needs to source speaker(s) and draft text; make sure that enough time has been scheduled for interview(s) (at least 1h for the footage and 1h for interview)
  • Send a visitors form to the WHG reception - book a parking space
  • Contact the relevant Building Manager

Filming & Editing

Three months before

  • Book the edit suite if you're working with the Media Production Unit

Before the filming

  • Ask the Unit to produce drafts for opening and closing slides, and to provide photos and web links
  • Make sure that we have permission to use any logo
  • Prepare opening and closing slides (size 1600 x 900 px); leave a white border around the slide

During the filming

  • Take lots of notes!
  • If we film live interview(s), make notes of questions that were repeated, which take is the best, any background noises, where to add slides, etc.

After the filming

  • Send notes to the editor; if relevant, send notes to the Unit for them to choose shots
  • If we film live interviews, make notes/suggestions what to keep and what to drop, in which order
