I recently completed a large video production project for University of London, involving taking many of their universities’ courses online. The project involved taking raw (sometimes low-quality phone-filmed) footage of tutors delivering lectures, keying the footage, cleaning up audio, adding graphics and branding, etc.
The huge amounts of assets and people involved means the project needed a reliable mechanism of sharing assets and tracking amends. I created a network cluster to enable people working on the project to keep things up-to-date easily and an online kanban style board for tracking the status of all deliverables. This helped make the project feel more ‘agile’ and kept work flowing. I also encouraged WIP limits and elevation of constraints to reduce blockages, while the tutors were encouraged to involve themselves in the QA and feedback process as early as possible, to reduce amend cycle time.
