Post-production / Production


APostLab is a training programme focusing on post-production of internationally co-produced feature films, aimed at enhancing knowledge, understanding, and appreciation of post-production. 

Dates: 28 November - 3 December 2019, Bucharest, Romania

Each year, APostLab offers an itinerant 6-day workshop, dedicated to provide participants a better understanding of the technical, financial, managerial, and creative aspects of post-production, with a specific focus on the international co-production environment.

Subjects include: post-production workflows, schedules, budgets and technical aspects as well as management of creative processes such as sound and VFX. The workshop is conducted in English, and consists of plenary sessions, individual coaching, and group work.

APostLab admits 22-24 participants  for each workshop, and offers an intensive course that involves plenary sessions, group work, and individual consultation with trainers. Producers arrive at the workshop with an international feature film project at the development/financing/pre-production stage, and are teamed up with a post-production supervisor to jointly develop the post-production workflow, schedule and budget of their projects. The teams are trained by top-level producers and post-production supervisors. 

Learning outcomesThe workshop teaches how to incorporate post-production and VFX in a project from the start. It covers all crucial components – from budget and planning to creative and technical aspects. The goal: to end up with the skills necessary to avoid any bottlenecks in planning and budgeting, and to become capable of having eye-level discussions with all parties involved in the post-production of your future films and series.

The workshop also addresses what it takes to deliver a production to the international market.
