The Post-Production Process: Once the videos have been shot, post-production begins:
Editing the original by choosing the good material and copying it to a new, blank tape, leaving the unwanted scenes behind. Editing is just selective copying. When you edit, you simply copy the desired footage from original tape to a blank tape. You don't have to cut the original tape or record anything new on it.
Adding titles to identify people, places, and things; to help tell the story; or to give yourself credit! Titles are added as you edit, recorded on the new tape between scenes or superimposed on top of the moving video.
Adding effects between scenes to make the production interesting and to make the production flow. Effects are also added as you edit.
Changing the sound and adding music and sound effects. You can mix music and microphone narration over the sound that is already on the original, you can replace the sound, and you can add sound effects (splat!) that help you achieve the desired feeling.
Incorporating high-end special effects to add pizazz and create visuals you otherwise could not shoot! For instance, you can use chroma key to fly someone over the city or to place your actors at an exotic location.
Duplication and distribution.

POST-PRODUCTION: After the production period there is a syncing review session and students begin editing their films. In the second week of editing, students screen rough-cuts of their films for their mentors and receive feedback. Throughout the post production period, the editing instructor is available for consultation. Students will have up to 200 hours of individual editing time. They finish their films with multiple mixed tracks of sound. Students who are printing their projects back to film and other interested students have the option of editing on Avid Xpress DV.

The further are in the PROCCES, more things that are not yet done are on your list and your mind. So, give yourself some time (schedule it) to catch up. On Don't Do It page I should have another law -- Post Production is not to do should be done during the production period. Ine you screwed up your timetable, you are in the great danger to drag your project indefinately (sometime 10 years, sometimes -- never!)

Remember, I advised you to have a producer, who can inforce the dates and numbers (even you make your film on your own money).

Learn to drop things (better to get it in the next project); keep the post-production for it MUST be for -- editing, first.

Time and again -- all your problems are in the initial stages! Sometime the reasearch wasn't done, something there is no way to fix it! Learn to aim better! You still can correct the motion of the errow in the PP period, somewhat, I say. Especially, if understand the editing as art.


[ From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. ]

Post production is the general term for the last stage of film production in which photographed scenes (also called footage) are put together into a complete film.

Post production is in fact many different processes grouped under one name. These typically include:

Editing the picture.
Editing the soundtrack.
Writing and recording the soundtrack music.
Adding visual special effects - mainly computer generated imagery and digital compositing.
Adding audio sound effects - like ADR, Foley, and sound design.
Colour grading, and neg cutting the final master copy from which release prints will be made (although this is expected to be made obsolete soon by digital cinema technologies).
Typically, the post production phase of creating a film takes longer than the actual shooting of the film, and can take several months to complete.

Other film production stages include (very broadly) - financing, writing the screenplay, rewriting the screenplay (repeat), and the actual shooting.

First -- Editing!


What is the editor's role? What do we call "coverage"? What is "shooting ratio"?
