Post-production

Post-production is part of the process of filmmaking, video production, video production and photography. Post-production includes all stages of production occurring after shooting or recording individual program segments. Traditional post-production has been replaced by video editing software that operates on a non-linear editing system. Post-production is many different processes grouped under one name; these include: Video editing the picture of a television program using an edit decision list Writing and editing the soundtrack. Adding visual special effects - computer-generated imagery and digital copy from which release prints will be made. Sound design, sound effects, ADR, music, culminating in a process known as sound re-recording or mixing with professional audio equipment. Transfer of color motion picture film to video or DPX with a telecine and color grading in a color suite; the post-production phase of creating a film takes longer than the actual shooting of the film and can take several months to complete because it includes the complete editing, color correction, the addition of music and sound.

The process of editing a movie is seen as the second directing because through post-production it is possible to change the intention of the movie. Furthermore, through the use of color grading tools and the addition of music and sound, the atmosphere of the movie can be influenced. For instance, a blue-tinted movie is associated with a cold atmosphere and the choice of music and sound increases the effect of the shown scenes to the audience. Post-production was named a "dying industry" by Phil Izzo of the Wall Street Journal; the once exclusive service offered by high-end post-production facilities have been eroded away by video editing software that operates on a non-linear editing system. As such, traditional post-production services are being surpassed by digital, leading to sales of over $6 billion annually. In television, the phases of post-production include: editing, video editing, sound editing and visual effects insertions and the start of the airing process. Professional post-producers apply a certain range of image editing operations to the raw image format provided by a photographer or an image-bank.

There is a range of proprietary and free and open-source software, running on a range of operating systems available to do this work. The first of post-production requires loading the raw images into the post-production software. If there is more than one image, they belong to a set, ideally post-producers try to equalize the images before loading them. After that, if necessary, the next step would be to cut the objects in the images with the Pen Tool for a perfect and clean cut; the next stage would be cleaning the image using tools such as the healing tool, clone tool, patch tool. The next stages depend on. If it's a photo-montage, the post-producers would start assembling the different images into the final document, start to integrate the images with the background. In advertising, it requires assembling several images together in a photo-composition. Types of work done: Advertising that requires one background and one or more models. Product-photography that requires several images of the same object with different lights, assembled together, to control light and unwanted reflections, or to assemble parts that would be difficult to get in one shot, such as a beer glass for a beer advertising.

Fashion photography that requires a heavy post-production for editorial or advertising. Techniques used in music post-production include comping and pitch correction, adding effects; this process is referred to as mixing and can involve equalization and adjusting the levels of each individual track to provide an optimal sound experience. Contrary to the name, post-production may occur at any point during the recording and production process

It was released in May 2003 as the lead single from Liz Phair, it reached number 32 on the Billboard Hot 100, Phair's highest-charting single to date, only top 40 single. The single was certified gold; the song is featured on the 13 Going on 30 Soundtrack. "Why Can't I?" is written in the key of B major and has a tempo of 81 beats per minute. It follows a chord progression of B–B/A♯–G♯m7–E. Chuck Taylor of Billboard called the song a "melodic adult pop/rocker" and a "knock-out, stand-out, break-out record that adult top 40 should take right home." Matt LeMay of Pitchfork said that with the "cookie-cutter rock/pop background" it could pass for Michelle Branch." Mary Huhn of the New York Post called the song "a breathless romantic confection, un-Phair-like". Mim Udovitch of Slate called the song an "almost parodically basic power ballad" but stated that the chorus is "hooky". Adrien Begrand of PopMatters called the song a "note-for-note retread" of "Complicated" by Avril Lavigne.

The video was directed by Phil Harder and was released in June 2003. It features a jukebox where an unknown man puts a coin in the jukebox where Liz Phair appears on every record cover on the jukebox indicating the songs lyrics. Lyrics of this song at MetroLyrics
