Postproduction - Overview

By now you have a pile of film or video tapes, sound recordings, music and a lot of notes. The next step is to turn all of this into a movie.

Buzz: As you approach the time when your film can be sold you don't want to lose any momentum.

Editing: Almost anyone can afford a PC capable of editing a film. But there's a lot more to it than having the equipment.

Sound: It's as important as the images to a polished, professional film.

Music: Set the mood if you want to make your point.

ADR: Your audience won't understand your movie if the dialog sounds unnatural or inaudible.

Foley: What finally sells the realism of your movie is all the little background sounds.

Happy Filmmaking!
