The filmmaking process doesn’t end at the shooting stage. There is still post-production which is the last chance for a production team to perfect their masterpiece. In fact, it is the editors who will be their “saviors” in post-production, but it doesn’t rule out any possibility of working with directors who can save them. This discussion will talk about tips on building collaboration between editors and directors in the post-production stage.
