Video Production: Moving from Production to Post

Amy DeLouise & Luisa Winters

About this course

With projects moving at lightning speed, "fix it in post" is no longer possible. (If it ever was!) However, learning smart production strategies will streamline video editing and maximize your creative choices. Watch this course to learn how to prepare your projects, including interview-driven, multicamera, and asset-driven productions, for editing in Final Cut Pro or Premiere Pro.

Amy DeLouise reviews production planning, on-set strategies for effective media management, and tips for creating transcripts, editing scripts, and asset lists for editors. During post-production kickoff, she talks about managing your client's expectations: balancing their needs with the realities of production. With any luck, you can reconcile the two in post, using Amy's instructions for setting up Final Cut and Premiere Pro projects for success. The final chapter includes bonus post-production strategies for future-proofing and exporting projects.

Topics include:

  • Building a creative brief and concept boards before the shoot
  • Determining the technical requirements for the shoot
  • Taking good field notes
  • Using slates
  • Managing media effectively on set
  • Backing up source footage
  • Preparing interview transcripts, editing lists, and asset lists
  • Reviewing your post-production plan
  • Setting up Final Cut Pro projects
  • Setting up Premiere Pro projects
  • Syncing dual sound and multicamera media
  • Exporting files for audio post and color grading
