Pipeline Research and Planning

Updated: Aug 1, 2022

For this concluding term, I need to be efficient in planning the final steps so that I can finish in the time I have left. Starting from May 30th I have until the 19th of August to complete everything I can. So that's only 2 months and 2 weeks.

I'm going to start by having a better sense of the overall pipeline steps I have left so this is some brief research into the stages and options I have to do this term to complete the film.

Much like that one pipeline comic that seems to be used a lot when discussing the pipeline, for me, it is useful to break down the stages into the smaller steps that go into completing them to have a better understanding of things and essentially a to-do list of everything that needs to be done.
