01 // DEVELOPMENT
During this stage, the Company will “package” the film (i.e. attach actors, directors, key production personnel and other talent).
02 // PRE-PRODUCTION
During this period (the eight weeks prior to the start of production), the Company will hire all crew, engage a locations scout to secure the locations where shooting will occur, secure rentals for camera and lighting packages, prepare shooting schedules, etc. At this time, all actors will be cast and finalized for the film.
03 // PRODUCTION
The principle photography will be shot. After these production days, all of the scenes for the movie will be completed or “in the can”.
04 // POST-PRODUCTION
During the post-production period (approximately three to four months), the director and editor will select the best “takes” of the various scenes and edit those takes into an assembly of the entire film. The director may also do “looping sessions” (re-recording the actors voices in a sound studio) and “Foley sessions” (creating sound effects).
