Can you even imagine a life without the movie industry? No Hollywood, no Wesley Snipes, Tom Cruise, Johnny Depp, take a minute and think about it. The movie making industry has for a long time been a reliable source of entertainment, inspiration and generally an educative platform to multitudes around the world. Among the key reasons for this is because the post-production work goes unnoticed by many. Post-production entails editing raw material to make sense of everything. Editing entails adding special effects, translation – where necessary, deleting unnecessary bits, and so much more. All of this is done by sophisticated software and expertise.
