In the Grand Scheme of Things, we want to Self-Certify all of the routines and processes that ensure that the Director’s Intent is getting portrayed on the screen. We do this for the Director, who had the first vision, and for our customer, who has the last vision.
How do we do that? The answer is to build in some automatic checks on each part that we are responsible for. Generally, we are responsible for a quality picture with quality sound and a safe and comfortable experience.
How do we do that? First, we must detail and describe each process and second, we must write out a procedure to check that each thing we learn from the first step is being done. Some things may need to be done everyday, like security checks. Somethings might only need to be done every once in a while.
So, this is it – we have done it. The Checklists that automate quality control. Your Eyes. Your Ears. Your ability to communicate and learn, and observe, and communicate even better!
