What are the key elements of pre-production for a budget conscious documentary?

After receiving a faculty research grant to kickstart our #documentary, we started preproduction. What are the key elements of pre-production for a budget conscious documentary?

I used my experience freelancing for factual programing to develop a plan.

1. Pack Light

2. Prepare your releases : Personal, Location, Material

3. Book Locations for Filming and Develop Map for Interviewees

4. Plan a Calendar PACKED with time for Interviews, Meetings, Research & BRoll
