'Meta' post-production workflow

This is the post-production workflow used in the making of my graduation short 'Meta'. Thanks to Ian Forbes for all of his help on workflow and colour grading.

Useful links;

Video Copilot has extensive AE tutorials including a comprehensive basic training course.

The guys as Popcorn Island have created an excellent script which allows you to import your FCP edit directly into AE with no rendering. Its called FCP2AE and saves you spending hundreds of pounds on Automatic Duck.

Stu Maschwitz has a great colour grading tutorial which covers some basic but extremely useful colour theory. It uses Magic Bullet Colorista but the concepts are the same for other grading tools.
