It’s a simple fact of production that you will shoot much, much more footage than will be seen in the final edit. The essence of editing is choices, and the complexity of an edit will depend on how much raw footage needs to be woven into what kind of final product. An edit can be quick and simple or meticulous and complex, depending on the plan.

Post-production considerations can include:

  • Booking the editing suite and the appropriate editing team.
  • Reviewing, ordering and labeling footage
  • Rough cut
  • Approvals
  • Final cut
  • Outputting and formatting for planned broadcast channels
