Post-production is the third and final major phase of the production process. It is often referred to simply as post, e.g. “We can sort that out in post”.

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

  • Editing video footage
  • Editing the soundtrack, adding sound effects, music, etc.
  • Adding titles and graphics
  • Color and exposure correction
  • Adding special effects
  • Re-shooting certain scenes if required (“pick-up” shots)

  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 because it includes the complete editing, color correction and the addition of music and sound. The process of editing a movie is also seen as the second directing because through the post production it is possible to change the intention of the movie. Furthermore through the use of color correcting tools and the addition of music and sound, the atmosphere of the movie can be heavily influenced. For instance a blue-tinted movie is associated with a cold atmosphere and the choice of music and sound increases the effect of the shown scenes to the audience.
