Chris Russo from ThePostLab.com will help you navigate the different workflow permutations so you can make informed choices depending on the many variables in play, such as camera files, compression, file size, editing platform, and deliverables. Learn how preparing early on and budgeting realistically will save you time, money and headaches in the long term.
