As with most processes, we can define a “beginning” and an “end” but remembering that later or earlier steps can be included to expand the scope of the process.
In this video-making example we begin with “Capture” — taking a photo, recording audio, filming. No amount of post-production correction can replace having good original material so, there is a whole preparation stage prior to that – what, where and how will we record? How many cameras? How many, and what kind of, microphones are required?
We end our process description with having the video viewable on-line in an attractive and added-value way — “Valorization“. Yet the process could continue to include gathering viewing statistics, doing monetization, or making surveys and eventually producing updates or follow-on productions.
