Directing the edit: Creating a Short Film: 05 Directing

After film production ends, then the phase of filmmaking called post production begins. Post-production typically begins with the editing of the movie. During this process, film editors will start by making a rough edit of the film - often called a rough cut - and then show the film to the movie director. The editor and director will then fine tune the edit until achieving picture lock.
