Previously, in our animation groups we began our pre-production for our 3D animation advert. I produced a production schedule which is a plan of what will be in throughout the production, when it will be done and who it will be completed by. We also created mind maps to brainstorm ideas of our 2D and 3D animation. We merged together our ideas and displayed a final mind map for each animation. Other pre-production tasks that other members of the group (Shazam) completed was plans/drawings of our character and set designs. I didn't think that pre-production was at all important because in previous assignments the pre-production has either been completed at the end or changed. By completing all of the pre-production first I now fully understand how it works and it is much easier to follow when producing the advert.
