FILM PRODUCTION

Film making is the process of making a film, generally in the sense of films intended for extensive theatrical exhibition. Filmmaking involves a number of discrete stages including an initial story, idea, or commission, through screenwriting, casting, shooting, sound recording, and pre-production, editing, and screening the finished product before an audience that may result in a film release and exhibition.

Filmmaking takes place in many places around the world in a range of economic, social and political contexts, and using a variety of technologies and cinematic techniques. Typically, it involves a large number of people and can take from a few months to several years to complete.

FILM PRODUCTION CONSIST OF SEVEN MAJOR STAGES


DEVELOPMENT-

The start of a project varies, but generally will begin with the development of a script, be that an existing script, a book, a brief outline. Development may also start with a Director and/or Writer pitching an idea to a Producer.

PRE-PRODUCTION-

The is the phase where you would narrow down the options of the production. It is where the entire planning takes place before the camera rolls and sets the overall vision of the project. Pre-production also includes working out the shoot lo9cation and casting. The Producer will now hire a line or Production Manager to create a schedule and budget for the film.

PRODUCTION-

During this phase it is key planning ahead of the daily shoot. The primary aim is to stick to the budget and schedule, this requires constant vigilance. Communication is key between locations, set, office, Production Company, distributors- in short, all parties involved.

PRINCIPLE PHOTOGRAPHY-

This is when the camera rolls. It is nearly always the most expensive phase of film production, due to actor, director, and set crew salaries, as well as the costs of certain shots, props, and on-set special effects. Everything that has happened up to this point is to make principle photography go as smoothly and efficiently as possible. Communication between all parties is crucial during the shoot and the production must maintain a full set of records and strive to remain on time on budget.

THE WRAP-

The period immediately after shooting ends. It is when we strike (dismantle) the set and clear the location. Everything must be returned in good order to suppliers and there must be a full set of records of the shoots.

The POST-PRODUCTION-

This stage starts when principle photography ends, but they may overlap. The bulk of post-production consists of reviewing the footage and assembling the movie-editing.

There will be a contribution as required from Visual Effects (VFX), Music, and Sound Design. The picture will now be locked and delivery elements will be created. Further information on Post Production can be found later on in Week 1 of the course.

DISTRIBUTION-

Once the film is completed, it must be distributed. This is how producers make their money back and a considerable amount of time and energy will be invested to secure the right distribution deals for their projects. The film will go into the cinema and/or distributed via the various platform.
