The process of developing multimedia content involves combining linear video, sound, and graphical animation into an appealing format for presentation. As such the cost of producing multimedia content can be considerably higher as compared to a web design with photos and text. A key component to the development of a successful multimedia campaign is in the pre-production planing. As part of the overall web strategy. How will the multimedia content help support the companies objectives and is it worth the cost to produce it. The pre-production plan should be able to describe in detail the goals of the campaign. What is needed to produce the finished product. From this a storyboard could be develop to further help in the creative process and get everyone involved on the same page of thought. Budgets can be setup and reviewed against the companies goal to determine what the return on investment should be. After roughing through the concepts and agreement is made on the final concept the production phase can start. By putting all this down on paper first will reduce overruns in the production cost. Changing an idea midstream in the production phase can be costly. This may also require having to review the original content and reproduce content to match the changes. After the production phase is done. The film is in the can. The post-production phase can begin. This is where the raw content is edited together to form the final product. Visual effect can be added during the post production phase.
