Post Production & Delivery for Film
Wed 14 Jun 2023
Free (No booking required)
Whilst the technology surrounding post-production for film has evolved, there are still core principles that apply, and some anomalies born of legacy practices that lurk to catch you out.
Choices made by filmmakers at the beginning of a production will profoundly affect a projects deliverability. From picking a frame rate & aspect ratio to selecting a codec, the decisions made all factor into ensuring a finished production matches the requirements of your intended destination.
This workshop & Q&A with post-production specialist Tim McGill will explore and demonstrate the processes and issues in the space between post-production and delivery and getting the best for your project.
After training as an actor, Tim McGill first started his post-production career 40 years ago in a basement in Soho’s Wardour Street, working for a firm which was to grow to be the biggest home video duplicator in Europe. Twenty years later he set up his own post-production service specialising in those final processes that make a broadcast programme meet the required deliverable specification for major broadcasters worldwide including BBC, Channel 4, Sky, National Geographic, PBS, Disney and many others. In addition, Tim has worked with the Tate Gallery as a consultant with their time-based media archive, which led to working with some extraordinary contemporary artists working with video.
