Join James Ball for an in-depth discussion in this video Transitioning to post, part of Multi-Camera Video Production and Post.
- Now Jim, once the production's done,…we gotta move into post-production,…but I think one of the problems I often experience…is poor communication from the set to the edit suite.…As the director of photography,…what's some of the information that you wanna make sure…gets conveyed to the editor so they have an easier time…putting all these pieces together?…- There is a good amount of autonomy in the edit room,…but there are things that are helpful.…Now, if the story people and the production people…are doing their jobs, they've probably taken…some pretty good notes about when things happen…in the story, which cameras were on the best thing,…the inserts, whatever.…
So a lot of that stuff is being taken care of…through the production folks.…Where it's helpful for post, from my perspective,…is when I can supply them with some tech specs…and some creative specs related to tech with the cameras,…and a lot of that has to do with scene files…and how the cameras were shaded,…what kind of technical set up was done on set…
You'll learn essential preproduction strategies to get the right gear and place it in the right position. You'll also learn techniques for syncing the visuals and audio captured from each camera. Rich and James offer advice for directors running shoots in the field, as well as strategies for crew members who are building sets and logging footage. Finally, in chapters 7 and 8, they share techniques for multicamera postproduction with Final Cut Pro X and Premiere Pro. In these chapters, you'll learn how to create multicam clips, apply color correction, color match angles, switch between angles, and refine and master your edit. By the end of the course, you'll have a thorough start-to-finish understanding of the multicamera production process.
