The post-production phase begins with the raw source footage and ends with a completed movie.


There are many things which can happen in post-production. Common tasks include:

  1. Editing video footage
  2. Editing the soundtrack, adding sound effects, music, etc.
  3. Adding titles and graphics
  4. Colour and exposure correction
  5. Adding special effects
  6. Re-shooting certain scenes if required (“pick-up” shots)

In some cases post-production is relatively straightforward, consisting of choosing and arranging footage in the correct sequence. In most cases however, post-production is a time-consuming job taking longer than the actual production phase.
