Which concepts make the transition from idea to production? What are the steps along the way? The range of activities necessary to take a film from conception to production will be explored in this panel, including the initial development of the project, the writing process for fictional works and documentaries, the logistics of casting, crew, locations, and scheduling, and the many additional planning steps necessary before shooting begins.
