Post–production (commonly known as “Post”) – the period where the project/production is edited for both picture and sound. Music and visual effects are also composed during this time and added to the film. Marketing and publicity materials are generated. This period can last from 4 – 12 weeks*.
Film Production is created in 5 phases: development, pre-production, production, post-production, and distribution. Each phase has a different purpose, with the overarching goal to get to the next one, and ultimately on to distribution. Each stage varies in length, and different roles suit different stages.
