Join James Ball for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with media, part of Multi-Camera Video Production and Post.
- Media organization starts on the field.…If it's not organized well on the field,…you're going to have trouble in post-production…or you're just going to have to reorganize it all anyways.…So it's very important to have someone in the field…responsible for transferring and organizing media.…- Media management is a pretty important job…because it's the thing that is the culmination…of everybody's hard work on set during the day.…So in an ideal world and in higher budget productions,…there is a job description called Media Manager…or Data Wrangler, and so ideally,…there would be a person whose job it is,…is to manage media, especially since there's…going to be a lot of it when there's multiple cameras.…
So the second part of making that job successful…is a standardized procedure, routine if you will,…that takes the footage from the camera,…ingest it into hard drives, and onto post-production.…There are actually industry standards on…how to label and file, and move the media cards…around for all the various departments…

Finally, in chapters 7 and 8, they share techniques for multicamera postproduction with Final Cut Pro X and Premiere Pro.
