Inside Post - Interactive Guide to UK Post Production  

Post production is effectively the final step in the making of a film or television programme - a process of refinement and transition of raw materials into a finished product before distribution and release to the public.

Editing is a key function - of picture, sound, effects, or a combination of these, but there are other areas - telecine, sound, creating *DVD's and special effects to name a few.

Digitisation has dramatically altered the post production sector, with new editing and effects capabilities emerging all the time. Digital technology and computer-based editing systems allow for clearer pictures and smoother editing techniques, constantly improving picture quality, and making the traditional film cutting rooms increasingly obsolete.

*DVD means here: Standard DVD, HD DVD, Blu-ray and associated formats
