A film being made in Warsaw, Bracka street Filmmaking (often referred to in an academic context as film production) is the process of making a film, from an initial story idea or commission, through scri ptwriting, shooting, editing, directing and distribution to an audience. Filmmak ing takes place all over the world in a huge range of economic, social, and poli tical contexts, and using a variety of technologies and techniques. Typically, i t involves a large number of people, and takes from a few months to several year s to complete, although it may take longer if there are production issues, and t he record for the longest production time for a major motion picture is The Thie f and the Cobbler's 28 years development.

Stages Film production occurs in five stages: • Development—The script is written and drafted into a workable blueprint for a film . • Pre-production—Preparations are made for the shoot, in which cast and crew are hir ed, locations are selected, and sets are built. • Production—The raw elements for the finished film are recorded. • Post-Production—The film is edited; production sound (dialogue) is concurrently (b ut separately) edited, music tracks (and songs) are composed, performed and reco rded, if a film is sought to have a score; sound effects are designed and record ed; and any other computer-graphic 'visual' effects are digitally added, all sou nd elements are mixed into "stems" then the stems are mixed then married to pict ure and the film is fully completed ("locked"). • Sales and distribution—The film is screened for potential buyers (distributors), i s picked up by a distributor and reaches its cinema and/or home media audience. Development In this stage, the project's producer finds a story, which may come from a book, play, another film, a true story, original idea, etc. After identifying a theme or underlying message, the producer works with writers to prepare a synopsis. N ext they produce a step outline, which breaks the story down into one-paragraph scenes that concentrate on dramatic structure. Then, they prepare a treatment, a 25 to 30 page description of the story, its mood, and characters. This usually has little dialogue and stage direction, but often contains drawings that help v isualize key points. Another way is to produce a scriptment once a synopsis is p roduced. Next, a screenwriter writes a screenplay over a period of several months. The sc reenwriter may rewrite it several times to improve dramatization, clarity, struc ture, characters, dialogue, and overall style. However, producers often skip the previous steps and develop submitted screenplays which investors, studios, and other interested parties assess through a process called script coverage. A film distributor may be contacted at an early stage to assess the likely market and potential financial success of the film. Hollywood distributors adopt a hard-hea ded business approach and consider factors such as the film genre, the target au dience, the historical success of similar films, the actors who might appear in the film, and potential directors. All these factors imply a certain appeal of t he film to a possible audience and hence the number of "A.I.S." (or "Asses in Se ats") during the theatrical release. Not all films make a profit from the theatr ical release alone, so film companies take DVD sales and worldwide distribution rights into account. The producer and screenwriter prepare a film pitch, or treatment, and present it to potential financiers. If the pitch is successful, the film receives a "green light", meaning someone offers financial backing: typically a major film studio , film council, or independent investor.
