How To: Not Have To Fix It In Post

Workshop Overview:

It isn’t the editor’s job to fix things – yet writers and filmmakers do things that create a world of “fix it in post.” Learn from the experience of an editor to take a few steps in the editor’s shoes and utilize the perspective of post production throughout all of development, pre-production, and production. This includes having a good grasp of various types of shots to provide the most possible coverage for the edit, and understanding how to research for a wider film vocabulary yourself, and the value of having hands-on experience as an editor for all aspects of continuity, sound, coverage, and story.

Our Guest Host for this workshop is Spaceship, Executive Vice President of Space Dream Productions.
Utilizing the editor’s perspective and influence early in production to save time, money, and headaches!
