Creative Postproduction: Editing, Sound, Visual Effects, and Music for Film and Video provides essential insight into the postproduction process for general film students, those headed for careers as directors, cinematographers, producers, or writers, and those who want to pursue a career in the area of postproduction itself. While focusing on the creative aspects, it discusses many technical considerations along the way, and covers up-to-date technological developments. The clear language and a wealth of real-life experience shows readers how creativity continues to the very end of the filmmaking process.

Written by four award-winning, working professionals in film and television, this text provides students with first-hand insight into the business. It includes comprehensive coverage of editing, sound and visual effects, postproduction processes, and film music, giving students a well-rounded view of the entire postproduction process. The book stresses the aesthetic and creative aspects of film work after shooting is complete, an increasingly important aspect of filmmaking as more primary creation occurs in postproduction than ever before. An extensive glossary of postproduction terminology gives students a resource to recent terminology that is not yet widely understood.
