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:
- Editing video footage
- Editing the soundtrack, adding sound effects, music, etc.
- Adding titles and graphics
- Colour and exposure correction
- Adding special effects
- 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.
