Definition

Any significant multimedia project involves a core team that includes: producer, writer, and director, who work with other personnel, such as, programmer, photographer, videographer, and voiceover artists.

Multimedia project planning is a complex problem [1]. Any significant multimedia project involves a core team that includes: producer, writer, and director, who work with other personnel, such as, programmer, photographer, videographer, and voiceover artists [2]. Close coordination between these team members is essential. The Multimedia Design and Planning Pyramid (MUDPY) is a five-level model (Fig. 1) in which the top three levels comprise the project planning process [3]. The planning process should begin by articulating a clear Concept statement, and then expand it into Goals and Requirements.
