Telling a post-production artist, “I don’t like that,” is not very useful feedback. Everything about the creative process is subjective, so you need to be able to quantify the why. Walter goes over the post-production process and how to give the best feedback.
- Telling a post-production artist "I don't like that"…is not very useful feedback.…Everything about the creative process is subjective,…so you have to be able to quantify the why.…First, let's review the post-production process.…In general, the editor creates the first cut of the project,…called the "rough cut."…From there, you'll revise the edit,…have the client review the edit,…and once all the revisions are completed,…you'll have the final rough cut,…more commonly known as "picture lock,"…which basically means that…all the video editing is now completed.…
The same process will happen with the graphic design,…animation, music, sound design, and color grading.…There's a first version or "rough cut," of each stage.…You review and revise,…and then the final version of each element is completed.…At the end of the process,…the editor will bring all the final elements together…in a master timeline.…Once again, you'll review the master,…and oftentimes, there will be some revisions…once you see all the finished elements together.…
