What are the most important steps in the arduous process of film production? How do sound and cinematography work together to bring a filmmaker’s concept to completion? These questions will be covered by this panel dedicated to the complex process of production, including the challenges of financing, budgeting, and story development, through the logistics of casting, crew, locations, and scheduling, to the variety of techniques used to direct the actors, the camera, other technologies, the set, and the project itself. The roles of the director, producer, director of photography, sound crew, and editor will be discussed, as well as aspects of post-production, which includes the manipulation and collation of sound and image to create an integrated whole.
