Recently the idea of a "Film Production" site that would cover all aspects of film production (including things like scripting, planning, casting, costuming, props, etc as well as the actual principal photography and post production) was brought up on Area 51 and it was suggested that such a site would be a duplicate of Video Production.
At first I concurred with this assessment, but when I looked a little closer, I noticed that our current scoping documentation does seem to fall short of covering all aspects of production related to a film or video project and instead seems to only currently cover the technical aspects related to principal photography, post production and distribution.
This seems like an error to me that should be corrected. I don't see why questions about the broader aspects of producing a movie wouldn't be on topic for this site. Similarly, I don't see how a site about the broader aspects of movie making and this site could really co-exist as the amount of overlap would be massive and it would simply split up resources and make it harder to find useful information.
While some experts are very specialized within these fields, independent and commercial film creators have to wear many of the different hats involved in production at the same time. Should the scope of the site be expanded/corrected to more clearly indicate that all aspects of video and film production are on topic at the overall project level.
Update: I'm a bit worried that the level of interest in this question relative to the level of support for the answer I provided may indicate that some people's voices are not being heard. If you do not agree or have some alternate idea for what should or shouldn't be included, please consider making an answer, even if relatively basic, that will allow us to know your feelings.
