Inside Star Wars 7 Post Production Workflow – The Force Awakens
Creating a post production workflow for a massive film, and I say film literally, like Star Wars 7: The Force Awakens fascinated me.
I’ve post supervised hundreds of projects over the years but nothing the size of ‘Star Wars 7’.
So when I saw that Avid (the editing system used to edit Star Wars 7: The Force Awakens) brought out a free webinar on how Bad Robot went about their Star Wars 7 Post Production workflow film I was hooked.
Here’s the mandate the team had from writer/director JJ Abrams:
J.J.’s mandate from day one was authenticity and being as true to the original trilogy as possible. And he felt the prequels were flawed by the fact that they had every [CG] tool known to mankind and used everything at their disposal. I use the metaphor of disco when the synthesizer came about and everyone was using it in any way possible. And I think J.J. wanted to reconnect with how the original films were made.
This is a look inside to the very complex Star Wars 7 post production workflow, easily one of the most anticipated films in the last 15 years. Sit down and enjoy this inside look at how you design post production for the biggest film ever made.
