  • Starter:What post-production techniques have been used to create this mag front cover?Use the post-it notes provided.

  • Theoretical Evaluation- Post- ProductionAim: to discuss how your post-production skills have developed from AS to A2.

  • What is post-production?

    Post production is everything that is done after the production phase (photography, filming etc).It is the final stage of constructing your raw images/footage into a finished draft.

    What are the main elements to post production?

    Audio-visual work: Editing the raw filmed material.Choosing and dubbing on sound (if film).Converting files.Adding titles and other after effects.

    PrintSelecting and manipulating images.Merging layers.Layout design, including placement of text etc.

  • Film editing- recap

    During AS year we studied editing for the TV drama section of the exam.Editing is often thought of a as a process of cutting down.It can also be the process of coordinating and connecting one shot to another.

    Editing can be split into two sections:Juxtaposition and length of shots. Transitions and effects.

  • Analysing editing

    How does the editing help to create audience meaning in this trailer?

    Make notes and consider:Selection and sequencing of shotsUse of transitions and effectsThe sound editing.

    Task: Now write 2 paragraphs, discussing how the editing makes meaning for the audience.

  • Post production difficultiesFor this question it is vital that you compare across AS and A2.

    What could you have done differently during the post-production stage of your production work? Discuss.

    Thought about the editing/construction of mag before filming/photo shoot.Been more careful/organised in the selection of material.Had more practice on the software. Shared the burden of editing A2.Looked closely at professional work- often we only look at pro work during the planning stage!
