In Chapter 1, I said that planning might be the most important part of the whole process. You'll hear me say that a lot. But I also understand the human need to just roll up your sleeves and do it.
So, even if you choose to devote only a few minutes to planning your DVD project, this chapter will help you use those few minutes wisely.
I've found that the time I spend planning a project is almost always repaid with interest when I finish on time (or early), on budget (or under), and without having a lot of "do-overs" (if any) because of poor planning.
One last thing: I'm going to cover items in the order I consider them when I'm working on my own projects. Your style may be different, so feel free to combine steps, change the order, or even omit them. It's your project; this chapter is just food for thought before you fall too much in love with your project to think clearly.
