How to prepare for your Post-Production session
When you book an editing session with a staff member, the most important part is to come in prepared. Our editors will walk you through your concept design and figure out how to turn your idea into reality. The more prepared you are, the better the result will be when you are finished. So here is a helpful guide that will help prepare you for your editing session with us!
- Step 1: Know your goal
What is the purpose of your project? Knowing who to create for and why makes a big difference in the overall outlook of your final product. It is important that you and the editor are on the same page so you can get the best out of your project.
- Step 2: Do Your Homework
If you plan to bring in videotape, DVDs, or other forms of media you will benefit from timing out the portions you want to use. In other words, write down the specific time code of the portions you want the editor to capture. This will save you both time and money in the long run; videotape needs to be captured in real-time into our computers so if you only need 5 minutes of video it is best to know where it is on the tape instead of capturing 30 minutes of irrelevant information.
- Step 3: Invest Your Time
We want your project to be the best it can be and so do you. We all know that time is money but investing the necessary time is important for quality results.
