Join Eduardo Angel for an in-depth discussion in this video Introducing video post-production, part of Video for Photographers: 2 Filmmaking on Location.
- As we have seen,…there are a lot of steps that are similar…between shooting stills and shooting video.…But perhaps the biggest difference right now…is post-production.…Let's briefly talk about pre-production for one second.…We have to scout the locations,…we have to finalize what the gear is,…we need to determine what the crew is gonna be, all that.…That's pretty similar for both.…Production is a little different,…because it takes a lot longer…to shoot video than to shoot stills.…It generally takes several hours,…sometimes days and even weeks,…as opposed to a few hours for stills.…
But post-production, OK, that is the big difference.…Not only you're shooting for several hours,…but let's say you're shooting for, let's say,…three hours with three cameras.…You go back to your studio,…now you have nine hours of footage to go through…before you actually start editing.…That's nine hours, full day, without actually doing much.…Just watching the footage.…Then you have to organize that,…not necessarily in chronological order.…
