Week 11: Post-Production

This week, we have invited representatives from Deluxe New York, which is a major post-production facility. They will be discussing post-production considerations from a producer's point of view, costs, work flows, and options for post-production. This should be a useful and informative lecture.

An assignment has been posted for this week. Please  check Assignments to review it and begin work. Any questions should be posted in the Questions forum.


For this week, we will be starting another "real world" exercise. For this assignment, I have broken the class down into three (3) groups, which you will find in the Groups tab on the left of your screen.  Check the group to determine in which group you are enrolled. You will have a range of tools at your disposal to establish your online workspace and collaborate on this project.

ttached above is a copy of an actual RFP (Request for Proposal) which I received from a non-profit educational foundation.
 This is an example of the kinds of challenges producers will face.

Each group is to develop a proposal in response to this RFP and post it in the Non-Profit RFP discussion forum no later than Thursday 2 May, which is the second to last week of class. 

Read and review the RFP and post any questions that you might have in the forum.

As you pursue your discussions, think about how  you would begin to determine the style of production? How deeply would you pursue research at this stage, understanding that you may not get the job or, even if you did, that you may not be able to charge that time against the budget? How many shoot days would be necessary? What kind of schedule would you think would work? And so on...
