Another DVD Coming?

We got "official" word today that we're going to shoot another educational DVD.

This one is to cover "advanced math concepts," be shot only half days, and finish in a couple of months with about a month or so of pre-production.

I have my reservations.

Mostly notably: We don't have a clear picture of what this DVD is about. I was chatting with one of the producers today and he pointed to the Production Triangle I have hanging on my cube wall. I nodded and said, "But we don't even have an idea of what 'quality' means for this project. We don't know what it's supposed to look like in the end. And, honestly, we're not even sure about the amount of time we want to commit to this. So, we can't even talk about the Production Triangle yet because we don't have two of the points."

That's a huge problem.

After our chat he went to talk to one of the executive producers of the project.

We will see how this all pans out. If we're still green lit by the end of this week, I'll be meeting with the writer and director to talk over what we want to show in this DVD.

Ah, the world of production. Not too many dull moments <smile>.
