Presentation is most important in our life, or we can say in the media industry too. You make delicious food but you can not present it properly, so the first impression of you kill yourself, same with any stories or article. so post production is the most important part. Post-production is mainly part of the process of filmmaking, video production, photography, and magazines or books. But mainly people use this word during filmmaking or in the radio industry.
*Pre-production is the stage where you try and convince everyone that your film is about to start shooting.
*During production, everything happens at once. The actors, lights, camera, props, schedule, film stock, egos, temper tantrums, and all the rest. It is also called the shooting process.
*Post-production, somehow, is the part of the process that intimidates people most. All you need to know about post-production and finishing your film is in some steps listed below. Let us see those 13 steps.
Picture editor. Cinematographer is recommendations for an editor. The editor will read your script and look at the rushes, and from this information, cut the film according to their opinion of what makes the story better. A good editor will advise on the types of shots they will need, and advise on tricky post-production issues before the film starts.
Sound editor. Sound is the most important part of production. We hire sound editor for (a) cut dialogue tracks; (b) re-create sound effects; and (c) get cue sheets ready for simplifying step-7, the mix.
ADR and foley. This stands for automatic dialogue replacement. the actors come back and lip sync and loop dialogue that was not sharp and clear.
Foley have sound people called Foley Artists – or sometimes walkers – put the noise of footsteps and certain other sound effects into the film.
Secure music. For background music or effects and also for songs, we can hire a musician with his or her own studio to compose brand new original songs and tunes.
Re-recording/the mix. Now that you have 20–40 tracks of sound (dialogue, ADR, Foley, music) you must layer them on top of each other to artificially create a feeling of sound with depth. This is called the re-recording session or the mix.
Music and effects. Sometimes, when some other state or country wants this to be dubbed in their regional language so, will be selling the rights to your film to foreign nations
Titles. Editing is now done. Now what is left is to get the final pieces needed for the answer print. These title files are then added to the master track.
DCP. In order to deliver a film, we need to create a digital cinema package – a hard drive which contains the final copy of your film encoded so it can play in cinemas.
Dialogue script. Will need to create a dialogue script, which has the precise time code for each piece of dialogue, so the sub-titler or dubbing artist knows exactly where to place the dialogues.
Campaign image. A campaign image is likely the first thing a prospective distributor or festival programmer will see film. The image (with titles and credits) should let the viewer know exactly what the film is about.
Trailer. Create a 90–120 seconds trailer that conveys the mood and atmosphere of your movie. Often, programming and distribution decisions will be based on the strength of the trailer.
The above process is called post-production, which you see in 3 hours in a movie theater, or TV serials, or in a daily soap format.
What I learn and studying during my film making diploma course reference taken from some Indian industries, some Radiant British industries but at the end the process is same and we are proud to say, that we live in the county which has its own film industries called Bollywood and tollywood.
