Editing Lab

Film editing is the art and craft of cutting and assembling finished film. This work is done by a film editor who helps complete the director’s vision of the movie. The creative choices of an editor are usually a combination of what they think is best for the film and what the director (and producers) want for the finished project. Mostly done during post-production, aspects of film editing can involve physical strips of celluloid film, digital files, or both.

Post Production

Creating the Final Cut

Well-managed post-production will help your film or series reach its full potential, creatively as well as financially. This lab offers unique workshops that help you how to create a flow for your story through editing your shots

The lab will cover all crucial components – from budget to workflow and planning, to creative and technical aspects. The goal: you end up with the skills to avoid any bottlenecks in planning and budgeting, and you are able to have eye-level discussions with all parties involved in the post-production of your future films and series.

Post-Production is the stage after production when the filming is wrapped and the editing of the visual and audio materials begins.

Post-Production refers to all of the tasks associated with cutting raw footage, assembling that footage, adding music, dubbing, sound effects, just to name a few.

The Post-Production process is highly collaborative, across a few months to even a year, depending on the size and need of the project.
