Secrets for getting video post production right every time
The video post-production process is when all of your hard work starts to take shape. During post, you’ll take all of that raw footage you’ve collected and transform it into a polished, complete video. It can be challenging and time-consuming, but when video post production is done right, the results are undeniable.
So, how do you do it right, exactly?
The Ultimate Video Marketing Toolkit includes everything you need to put your video post-production on the right track (as well as pre-production and distribution). It includes a wide assortment of planning templates, spec sheets, and checklists designed to improve your team’s processes.
Post production requires both patience and precision, making strong organization an absolute necessity. But with teams spread thin, creating all the documents you need to keep things on track can feel overwhelming. That’s why the Ultimate Video Marketing Toolkit contains ready-made, editable versions of all the essential resources you need to stay organized. With your team using them, they’ll be free to focus on what they do best: Creating great videos.
The Ultimate Video Marketing Toolkit is packed with all the post-production resources you need to create more videos — better than ever before.
The video post production section of the Ultimate Video Marketing Toolkit focuses on all things “post.” In it, video creators of all skill levels will find the same tools that the Storyblocks video production team uses to make our most popular content, including:
A media folder organization guide to keep your assets in check during video post production
Disorganization is the arch-nemesis of efficient video post-production. By this stage of production you’ve most likely accumulated a huge number of assets like production documents, raw audio and video files, and any other visual elements. These can quickly become an organizational nightmare on your desktop if you don’t have a thoughtful file structure in place.
With the media folder organization guide you’ll find in the toolkit, you can keep everything straight. It walks you through every step to set up a neat and tidy system of file folders and subfolders. This will ensure all project assets are always right where you need them, when you need them. You’ll also pick up some tricks of the trade, like the best method for naming your folders. With it, you’ll always be able to find everything you need for your project.
