A schedule that allocates time for videoing is often made after arriving at the project site. New developments can be addressed and the facilitator can assist in preparing timelines for shots. For example, in Banda Aceh, the video makers wanted to shoot overnight fishing so the video crew, facilitator and expert had to be at the water by 5pm to see them go out and then again at 6am the next morning to video them returning.
