The script is finalized into what will be shot along with the shooting schedule and budget. The actors will be cast, locations will be found, and crew will be hired. Then the director and director of photography will create a shot list and storyboard detailing how each scene will be approached.
Every night before the next day of shooting, call sheets are sent out telling the cast and crew where to arrive at shooting locations. Once there, the crew assemble the equipment, rig the lights and audio, block the shots with the actors, and begin the filming process. All digital files are backed up to hard drives.
The footage is sent to our non-linear editors, and the film is cut, visual effects are added, the film is color corrected, and audio mixed. The soundtrack of the film is scored and we prepare for the screening.
