SUMMARY

  • Time spent in post production can be easily estimated with these rules of thumb: one hour per minute for the rough cut, another hour for the fine cut and another hour for sound editing.
  • The well is often dry when the movie gets to Post Production. Be sure to allot sufficient resources to cover all the tasks and requirements of your project in post.
  • With digital productions, it is easy to shoot mountains of footage. This can come at the detriment of the post production team - be sure you know the shooting ratio before planning post.
