Directors in Post-Production
Directors work with the editor to assemble a rough cut of the film.
Having overseen production, they’re now in a position to find the most effective way to realise their vision by selecting how to place scenes and shots for maximum effect.
While there is greater regularity to the post-production process than the frenzy of the shoot, the pressure is still mounted on the Director to produce an inspiring film and the work of multiple people still needs to be brought together at their best.
The final shape of the film emerges in post, hopefully creating a cinematic experience that will draw people from far and wide.
Very few first time Directors are entrusted with a feature film. Most gain experience by working within the screen industries and directing their own low-budget projects. There is no substitute for creating a portfolio of work, giving any budding Director an assortment of previous film-making examples to show and the experience at helming their own projects.
