POST PRODUCTION TO PRODUCE A FINISHED ENTERTAINMENT PROJECT
Post production refers to all the stages of production after the initial photography/recording has been completed for entertainment projects. These disciplines include editing of the picture/program, writing and/or recording & editing the soundtrack, adding special effects (sound and visual), creating titles and trailers, adding subtitles, dubbing or captions, and the final transfer of film to the medium it will be released & distributed as. Prior to distribution, there is videotape duplication & transfer, telecine, and standards conversions when necessary for TV or home entertainment products. Post production facilities are either stationary or mobile, and may offer rental editing bays, screening rooms, graphic artist services, dubbing stages, foley rooms with sound props.
