Everything you ever wanted to know about post but were afraid to ask
The objective of this 4-week Post-Production Foundation Course is to fully outline all aspects of post-production as it pertains to both the film and television industries, and demonstrate the purpose of each link in the post-production workflow. Aspects of both picture and sound are detailed, as well as the chronological sequence of how the many pieces of the post workflow fall into place.
From footage to finish, we dissect each step and clarify why each step is necessary. We consider the creative aspects such as colour grading or sound design, we delve into the technical aspects such as format conversions and DCP mastering as well as the final delivery requirements for broadcasters, producers, distributors and sales agents.
An overview of post budgets is also covered and gives attendees a chance to evaluate the real-world costs of projects in a range of budget scales from a large feature-length film to a low-budget factual lifestyle piece. Upon completion of this foundation course the student should have a firm understanding of every step in the post process and understand the basic terminology associated with them.
