Post Production Supervisors manage the post process, ensuring there is a clear channel of communication between the director, producer and all post crew and facilities. These roles include picture, sound and music editorial, re-recording mixers, DI colourists and picture post, VFX, composers, music supervisors and title companies. The post supervisor is responsible for the budget, liaising closely with the accountant, and for creating the post schedule, making sure the production meets its deadlines.

Our upcoming free taster events will be a chance to learn more about Post Production Supervision and to experience a day comprising of three complimentary sessions, to see if a career in Post is something you would like to pursue.

The three sessions will cover:

10:00am – 12:00pm: What is a Post Production Supervisor, and what is their role in the Post Production process of a film or high end TV show?
This session is a dive into a little bit of history of how the role came about, the main aspects of the role and how it fits into the workflow of the high end TV show or film, including a short section on the politics. We will also share some of the different documents that would be expected to be produced within Post.
1:00pm – 3:00pm: What is the basic workflow for Post Production?
This session will go more in depth about the workflow within Post Production, explaining about picture, sound and music post production workflows. This will be a great overview for anyone who knows a little bit about one aspect of Post, but not all, or for complete beginners.
4:00pm – 6:00pm: What are the basics of delivery for Post Production?
We will explain the basics of delivery, about the delivery requirements list and its role in Post Production. There will be a walkthrough explaining how the list gets used in different contexts and what each of the elements are. The day will be wrapped up with some more information about the Post Production Certificate course, including the fantastic course contributors that students will learn from and how the course will run.
