Production begins once the footage is recorded. This process will capture all the scenes and information captured in the pre-production process. During the production process you will work out the lighting requirements, framing and composition. Some projects will also shoot B-Roll during the production process. B-Roll is supplementary footage that is included in the finished product.

The production phase is the actual production  (making) of the material needed for the video.

It's at this stage of the video production process that you are actually producing the...

  • Graphics

  • Doing the camerawork

  • Animation

  • Music

  • Sound

  • Lighting effects

  • Narration and

  • Video footage etc....

Needed for the project.

At this stage you want to produce quality material so that you have plenty to work with when you go into the post production stage. Be sure to be as expert as possible in your use of your equipment such as; your digital video camera, lighting equipment, sound equipment etc.


The post production process begins after all the footage has been captured.  This is actually one of my favourite parts of the video making process. Graphics can be added along with images, music, colour correction and special effects. If you are producing your own video content there will be a bit of a learning curve at first, but it will be really rewarding.Post-production is like putting the last coat of paint on in a room and it will be well worth the time to learn the basics. This is where your video project will really come to life.

The 3rd stage of the production process is called the post-production phase... It is...

The organization and digital video editing of the material into the actual  video.

Post-production literally is where you bring together all of the different elements and material created in the production phase to form your finished product as you envisioned in the pre-production stage.

This stage is the process of assembling and putting together the media assets and material you have produced to form and finally produce your finished film or video project.

Team of Video Production

A film crew is a group of people hired by a production company for the purpose of producing a film or motion picture. The crew is distinguished from the cast as the cast are understood to be the actors who appear in front of the camera or provide voices for characters in the film. The crew is also separate from the producers as the producers are the ones who own a portion of either the film company or the film's intellectual property rights. A film crew is divided into different departments, each of which specializes in a specific aspect of the production. Film crew positions have evolved over the years, spurred by technological change, but many traditional jobs date from the early 20th century and are common across jurisdictions and film-making cultures.

Motion picture projects have three discrete stages: development, production and distribution. Within the production stage there are also three clearly defined sequential phases — pre-production, principal photography and post-production — and many film crew positions are associated with only one or two of the phases. Distinctions are also made between above-the-line personnel (such as the director, the screenwriter and the producers) who begin their involvement during the project's development stage, and the below-the-line "technical" crew involved only with the production stage.

A study of the 100 top-grossing films of each year between 1994 and 2013 found that there were an average of 588 crew credits per film,[1] however, profitable independent films have been made with crews of less than a dozen.[2]

Television crew positions are derived from those of film crew.


The director is considered to be a separate entity, not within the film crew's departmental structure.

  • Director

The director is responsible for overseeing the creative aspects of a film, including controlling the content and flow of the film's plot, directing the performances of actors, organizing and selecting the locations in which the film will be shot, and managing technical details such as the positioning of cameras, the use of lighting, and the timing and content of the film's soundtrack. Though directors wield a great deal of power, they are ultimately subordinate to the film's producer or producers. Some directors, especially more established ones, take on many of the roles of a producer, and the distinction between the two roles is sometimes blurred.

  • Second unit director

The second unit director is responsible for overseeing the photography assigned to the second unit, which can range from minor insert shots to large stunt sequences. The second unit director position is frequently filled by a member of the production, most often the editor or stunt coordinator.

  • Music director

In India-based movie productions, many of which are musicals, the term 'music director' is commonly used for the composer and music producer of the songs and score used in the film. The role involves supervising the arrangement, recording and mastering of film music along with conducting and orchestration.
