How to plan before your filming day

If you are looking to create video consistently, right? If you want to create systems to create content that you don't have to be a slave of this little machine (phone) over here, then the best thing to do is to create a plan of action.

So for the purposes of this video, I'm going to assume that you have already created your pre production plan, that you have all your content ideas that you have already kind of

figure out your message, right? Once you have that clear, the first thing you need to do is to go to your calendar and put a date that you are committing that is non negotiable, that you're going to be filming that day. If you are a woman, the next step I need you to do is to make sure that you book a makeup artist. And there's two main reasons why you should do that:

Reason. Number one is because when you look good, you up more radiant, you're more confident. You just feel better. And you want to portray that when you're in video, you want to feel like you are gorgeous and beautiful and confident, and having a professional makeup artists, you know, do their magic is going to make sure that you don't look tired at the end of the day, because you're going to be filming from morning till night. You're going to be committing to a full day of filming to create as many videos as you can possibly mustard. I mean, this is kind of like the system that I teach, you do not want to be creating videos all the time, because anybody gets time for that. Right?

And the reason number two, that you need to book a makeup artist is because by doing that, you are already committing to move forward because let's face it. You're going to want to back up. You are going to make up excuses. Oh, I really I'm bloated. Or I, I really don't feel like it. Or, you know, whatever your excuses are, we're going… to kind of shake them off and

we're going to own or space.

But they, Diana, I don't know any makeup artists. Don't worry. You go to Facebook and you say, Hey guys, I need a recommendation for a really great makeup artist. And you're

going to see how many requests you're going to get after that. Don't worry. That's not a problem. You can figure that out. Okay?

Perfect. You have your content created. You have booked your filming day.

You have booked your makeup artists. The next thing that I want you to do is to go through your wardrobe and kind of pre-select about 10 different outfits, right? Most of the clients that I work with from many different levels at the very least, they do 10 videos in one day.

I want you to kind of like prepare your wardrobe so that you, the day of the filming, you kind of have oldest laid out for you ,freehand. So when you're filming you film through videos, you go upstairs, you change comeback, you film three videos. You go upstairs, you come back. That's my recommendation.

Can you change per video? Sure. Yes, you can totally do that. But you know, if you're going to do more than 20 videos, you have 20 different wardrobe. And let me just tell you, don't freak out. Some ways that you can change up your wardrobe is by just, you know, adding a jacket. Sometimes most people filmed only from their waist up. So all you have to worry about is the top part. There's a little trick you can do. Like if you have some shirts that are big, just put like a little clip in the back.

I'm not doing it right now, but if a t-shirt would fit too big and it just doesn't feel right, you can put a little clip. Nobody's going to check the back of your t-shirt cause you're only facing forward. Right? So just it's okay. You're going to make it.

The day of the filming. You're going to wake up bright and early and you're going to have an amazing breakfast, get your makeup done. And let me tell you one tip for your makeup artists. I highly recommend that you ask them to come to your house. I don't want you to

go to someplace and then like get stuck in traffic and like, Oh my God, make sure that you're making your life easier for you that day. You need to have all your energy up. You need to show up like a rock star, right? And own that day.

You know, your message. All you're doing is kind of documenting it. All you're doing is kind of putting it out there so that you show up for those that are looking for you anyway. All right.
