Post-Production

As soon as principal photography has commenced the editing process can begin almost immediately after.


Nowadays, using highly evolved digital photography technology, the editor can start piecing together the project’s footage right after it has been shot, transferred and properly logged into their editing system.  The editor will roughly put together each scene, in tandem with the production, in order to present the director with the best ‘takes’ and options for when the director is no longer on set and principal photography is complete.  Once the project has wrapped it officially enters the ‘post-production’ phase and the editor now has the full attention of the director in order to collaborate and finalise the ‘director’s cut’.


Once the director’s cut is complete, the producer and sales agent then step in and make any revisions, if necessary, to ensure that the film satisfies the original creative vision and will maintain its appeal to the intended target market audience.  After they have agreed on the final version, the picture is ‘locked’ and the final stages of post-production can now come into play.


The visual effects and animation elements are created and implemented into the film by ‘VFX editors’ or ‘CGI artists’. Music and sound effects are added at the very end in order to properly match them to the final picture. The creative aspects of these final stages are driven by the director’s vision but the producer and sales agent decide if anything needs to be changed before the film is delivered to its distributors.
