Through the analysis of typical factual and drama workflows, each stage of post production will be explored from the following perspectives:

• The professionals involved.

• Delivery specifications and their impact on post producing content.

You will develop your understanding by critically reviewing factual and drama content from the perspectives offered and be encouraged to apply what you learn to your own practice.

This course is intended for people who work in any role in production and for those aspiring to work in post production.
