The production schedule should reflect the most realistic intended schedule for pre-production, the actual shoot or production and post-production through to delivery of the completed film/video. In addition to being an important document that tells the producer when certain tasks are to happen, it provides needed information to investors such as broadcasters who want to know when they can schedule the production for airing.
