Our third and final blog on the animation production process concludes with the ‘Post Production’ stage...
18: Final Music, Foley and Audio Mix.
With the visual aspects of the film complete, its now rendered out to a final film version which will require a music composer to orchestrate any final musical elements that need to be added to the existing audio track. This might also be the time for any last voice and/or sound effects to be recorded and mixed together during a final dubbing session.
19: Distributor & Marketing.
Although this doesn’t really apply to short independent film production, larger productions are now handed over to the distributor and marketers to hopefully ensure it reaches a large and profitable marketplace. Short films on the other hand are mostly made for the love of doing it, as they never make any money for the filmmaker!
