Welcome to the Lander Project Database. This database is broken down into "Projects" "Assets" "Missions" and "Archive" - similar to the PARA system, but for us it's PAMA (google PARA if you're unfamiliar).

You may want to add this page to your favorites sidebar if you visit often. You can also hide this description by clicking "hide description" above the title of the page.

Please do not change database properties. Pleas also don't change sort or filter settings unless you make a new view first, as this affects all teams. In most cases, the view you need should already exist, so explore and get familiar with what exists before making new views.

Instead, use the dropdown below to select views.

If all that is another language to you please spend an hour or two on the Notion Walkthrough page linked here: https://www.notion.so/landerearth/Notion-Walkthrough-4a88e4fbddba43e6a96eb586b932318e

Use the "All Development & Production" view for a kan-ban board of active projects, use the "Missions" view to access dashboards for each Lander project & client.

Use Calendar view if you're searching for something made recently.

Use the "all" view & the search function if you're looking for something old, or just hit CMD+P while on this page to search the whole dang database, including every transcribed meeting we’ve ever had...

Don't sweat it too much if you're confused at first. Everything is easy to undo so there are no mistakes, only learning opportunities! Play around and explore!

There are two types of tags in the "content includes" property tag family you'll see in every project - There is an entire rainbow of Types of Assets like "Notes" "Ad Copy" Etc., and there are also Status of Projects tags. Types of assets are there just for reference - feel free to just use however they seem useful to you. They're mostly just there for visual appeal. Status tags, however, help us organize things on Kanban boards and keep everyone aware of who's turn it is to work on them, so to speak.

Here is a complete run-down you can revisit whenever you need a refresher of how Status Of Projects tags should be used in our Projects database:

Planning - For things that we don't have any structure around yet that we'd like to begin putting ideas together around

Scope - For events once they have a run of show or productions that have been submitted by clients but aren't being produced this month but are too far off to be actively in development and we don't want them on the board.

Projects move into Proposal (if external or need someone else's approval) or Kickoff (if internal and you own responsibility for them and they've already been paid for)

Proposal - This is the column for when we're assigning team members and determining if a project will be green lit and funded.

Once a project is funded and green-lit it moves into Kickoff.

Kickoff - This is where projects sit until their dropbox folders & notion pages are completely established and filled in and teams have been invited to / tagged in both.

Once copywriting is done and the project is ready to have content made we move it into Development.

Development - While we are writing copy, shooting imagery, or developing code projects go here.

Once content acquisition is done, we move project cards into Production.

Production - The Production column is where all the assets of a project get assembled into drafts - this means video post production, picture editing, visual design for code changes, and event promotion implementation & queueing happens here.

Once final drafts are made from client feedback, visual design has been finalized for code changes, and for events all promotion posts & speaker coaching timelines are written and queued, they go into Quality Control.

Quality Control - This is where speaker coaching, picture & video edit feedback goes, and this is also where we run testing suites to make sure we catch bugs before code goes live.

Once tests have been run and all stakeholders have approved the quality of our drafts we link Final assets and move projects into Publishing.

Publishing - This is where we take copy written in previous stages, combine it with our final assets, and publish it in whatever format unless it's already been queued.

Projects that are primarily queued & scheduled ahead of time often move right into Promotion, and once something has been published it should always move into Promotion next.

Promotion - Promotion is the full circle moment, and it is just as important (if not more important!) as the Proposal, the Development, Production, and Quality sections. In promotion we let gallery subscribers know that photos have gone live on the Gallery and been tagged. We email pictures of VIPs to them to give them special moments. We shout about our work on social media and tag & shout each other out, and generally celebrate a job well done!

Promotion is ALSO where something goes when we're closing out the comments on a project and linking all of the final published assets.

Only once all final live assets are linked on the notion page and ALL comments are resolved do we move something into Archiving.

Archiving - This is where we move Dropbox files out of our public "working" company-wide folder and into private secure long-term archive, being careful not to break links or accidentally rename things as we do. We double check that all comments are resolved. We double check that all stakeholders featured in the published content have been notified about it and have shared it where appropriate. Once all these aspects are complete we move it into Finished.

Finished is where you can find all of our completed projects.
