Working on a remote team to complete a project is now the norm rather than the exception. In this article in Designing Sound contributed by Michael Schiciano of Skitch Studio, he shares his insights into working collaboratively and how to avoid some of the logistical challenges that can crop up.
Points covered in the article include:
- Establishing the Vision and Scope of the Project; Whenever I had issues coming up with ideas in the middle of a project, a very likely culprit was simply not doing enough communication early enough in the project.
- Detours and Changes; Sometimes these are messaged down from a client. Other times they are discovered as part of the work itself.
- Getting the Names Right; Another area you’ll want to make sure gets addressed during the middle of a production are the simpler, smaller details of effective naming conventions.
- Making the Delivery; The final stages of a project will bring forth another wave of heavy communication, most notably focusing on the details of the submission process.
