Production Roles

Large Hollywood films involve hundreds of people working together to ensure the film gets made in time and within budget. These roles can be very specialised in that they can be focussed in on a very specific part of the film.

These roles are done within and throughout different parts of the Media production process. Three of these sections include Pre-production, Production and Post-production.

Pre-production: The documentation and planning of the production are carried out in visual and written forms including production notes and storyboards. Who, how and when the production will be completed is also planned out.

Production: The planned production design is captured and recorded.

Post-production: The production is refined and resolved. Footage is edited together with music, special effects and sound effects.
