Choose the Right Documents. The 13 Steps Of Post-Production. There are three stages to film-making: pre-production, production and post-production.

The 13 Steps Of Post-Production

Many filmmakers are in a perpetual pre-production stage. Pre-production is the stage where you try and convince everyone that your film is about to start shooting. It's the nerve wracking stage where you wait for financial commitments to materialise in your bank, and for cast and crew to agree that they will definitely turn up. 'Real' pre-production is when you're spending money on script development, casting, scouting and securing crew. Bottom line -- pre-production is not difficult. The second stage, production, is right after you get financing. During production everything happens at once. When you do wake up, you find twenty hours of tape, or the equivalent in film stock by the foot of your bed. Post-production, somehow, is the part of the process that intimidates people most. 1. There are two ways of doing post-production.

The second is the digital way. The Movie Making Process: from Development Hell to the Shark Pool of Distribution. Contents 1.0 Development Development (also known, appropriately, as “development hell”) is a fuzzy, amorphous, painfully interminable period in which the film’s conception takes shape and the foundational elements are assembled.

The Movie Making Process: from Development Hell to the Shark Pool of Distribution

This description of the movie making process is written to be relevant to independent movie makers outside the Hollywood system, so traditional Hollywood-style development – which is currently mired in some considerable trouble – will not be dealt with here, because it is quite simply no longer a relevant, realistic or viable option for independent movie makers. Development consists of the following activities, which may overlap and may be sequenced in a different order in different movies: 1.1 Story development / treatment / scriptment / plot points / structure In this phase the movie’s story is developed. Having developed the basic structure of the story, for most screenwriters the next step usually involves writing a scene-by-scene outline of the whole movie.

2. Elements of Narrative:

THEY MEAN DIFFERENT THINGS when we speak about movies. Story: In a narrative film, all the events that we see and hear in the order the film presents them, plus all those that we infer or assume to have occurred, arranged in the mind of the viewer in their presumed causal relations, chronological order, duration, frequency, and spatial locations. The TOTAL WORLD of the STORY is called its DIEGESIS. Plot: In a narrative film, the Plot is a structure for presenting everything we directly see and hear in a film. Diegesis (Diegetic): Things which exist within the "world" of the film's narrative. Non-diegetic elements of a film do not "exist" or "take place" in the same plane of reality that the character's inhabit. Diegetic sound: Any voice, musical passage, or sound effect presented as originating from a source within the film's world.
