First job is to identify the best takes, then to trim them to roughly the right length and compile the movie by putting them in order. After this I begin the slow process of accurate trimming, working through the film bit by bit. Once this is done then I can turn to alternate shots and add these in and then finally add sound files from the off camera recorder.
Then the really slow bit begins!!! Colour grading, which as a colourblind director is something I need another pair of eyesto assist, followed by fine tuning,adding any sound effects and cleaning everything up before finally adding music.
That looks really scary written down…
