It will involve going out to the set location, putting your actors in front of the camera and finally bringing the film to life. In cases of reality shows, you will just leave your camera in the location to record the live events. The recorded videos are always known as raw footages because they contain even the unwanted parts. It is at this stage that both the crew and actors are involved and they need a lot of time. When the shooting is done then this process comes to an end. They will then move on to the post production process.
At the post production process, it is also only the top crew members that are involved. They are the producers, directors and editors. The main people in this process are the editors. Their work is to trim the raw footages and put them together by joining them to make a full story. They will also add sound, lighting and effects to the video.
