– activate prior knowledge of the chosen topic, language, type of media text(s) and past experiences

– research the topic using resources from various media

– clarify, reshape or confirm the meaning a media text holds

– create a script or storyboard (the storyboard includes elements such as determining the purpose, context and target audience; arranging the sequence of events; deciding on the content; taking the length of the production into account; using and determining roles and responsibilities within the group)

– validate the media text by doing a practice-run with a sample audience

– make adjustments according to feedback (in the production process, the term ‘editing’ refers to any adjustments made.)
