The 7 stages of film production

When it comes to making a film there are 7 key stages of a film’s production

Each of these steps are different and important, they can be done years apart, often in the case of a feature film or tv series the development and preproduction stages can go for many years before a project is greenlit and goes into production with a full cast and crew.

Often there can be different creative teams for the different stages of production, some roles are involved throughout all 7 stages of the production whilst other roles come in only during one stage to do a specific job.

1. Development
2. Pre-Production
3. Production
4. Principal Photography
5. Wrap
6. Post-Production
7. Distribution

Over the next 7 weeks I will go through each stage of production with a short summary of whats involved.
