ABOUT THIS MODULE

Polish, polish, then polish more until its perfect – that is the mantra behind the fine cut.
 
In this module you will learn techniques for perfecting every single frame of your movie before locking the picture edit, how you will know when the movie is done, the implications of locking the picture, and the process of prepping the film for audio.
 
Making a mistake at this stage can cost thousands of dollars and valuable time later when the film is in the audio post-production phase, so learn how to approach the fine cut process right the first time and walk always confident in your picture lock.

 "Jason proves that top-notch production values are within the reach of anyone who has ever dreamt of making his own movie. You’ll learn far more about filmmaking with this practical, thorough and meticulously organized site than you ever will watching "Project Greenlight."
