Starting with raw files, the editing of film work begins in post-production. Culling shots into sequences, building a cohesive story that makes sense from sub-clips, and understanding a pace that provides an engaging story.
Each story provides its own emotion requiring a diverse choice of mood and tone to follow. These tones are refined in the creative process before editing and discussed with the client's needs in part of consumer's feedback.
A completed post assembly supplies a cohesive narrative of sub-clips refined as a polished cut ready for special effects or numerous audio aspects of the film project. Other future refinements can include color grading and a choice of file formats for rendering and encoding the project to the desired media output.
