Post production is a very important part of the filmmaking process. It’s when all the footage from your shoot is put together and edited into a final project that represents your vision for the film. Post-production can be stressful, but it doesn’t have to be! Here are some suggestions for foods that’ll help keep you calm during post:
1. Strawberry cheesecake
Strawberry cheesecake is a delicious treat that can be served in the post production department. To make it, you will need:
- A bag of strawberries
- A block of cream cheese
To make this dessert, simply take your bag of strawberries and mash them into a bowl. Add some cream cheese to the mix until it’s smooth. Serve this delicious concoction with some ice cream on top for an extra special treat!
2. Mango fruit punch
It’s important to have a lot of options available during post production, as you’ll be working hard with minimal breaks. This recipe will give you an energy boost and make it easier to focus on your work.
- 1 cup sliced mangoes (fresh or frozen)
- ½ cup pineapple chunks (fresh or frozen)
- ½ cup orange juice
Instructions: Puree all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Pour into glasses and serve chilled. If desired, garnish with mint leaves and fresh fruit slices before serving for the final touch!
A macaroon is a small, round cookie made with coconut and sugar. It can be decorated in many different ways—dotted with chocolate, dipped in icing, or rolled in shredded coconut.
The ingredients for macaroons are as follows:
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup sugar (white or brown)
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder (optional)
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt (or 1/4 tsp table salt)
To make these cookies: In a bowl, combine the above dry ingredients plus 2 tablespoons of egg whites from the recipe below (or just use an extra egg white). Mix until it becomes crumbly. Then add about 5 tablespoons of melted butter to bind everything together. You can add more if needed but try not to overdo it! To form into balls, roll between your palms until perfectly round–they don’t have to be perfect since they’ll get chopped up anyway! Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes on parchment paper lined sheet pan; cool before serving so they don’t fall apart when you bite down 🙂 Store any leftover macaroons in an airtight container out of direct sunlight; should keep them fresh for several days at least if kept cool enough during prep time 🙂
4. Glazed donuts with sprinkles
Glazed Donuts with Sprinkles
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
3 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 egg, beaten (or 2 Tbsp flax eggs)
1/2 cup milk (or non-dairy alternative)
Vegan sprinkles recipe: 1 C organic cane sugar, 2 C water and 1/4 C cornstarch. Mix together in saucepan until thick; then add your desired colouring agents. Add more or less colouring agent if you want a darker or lighter shade of blue. Set aside to cool completely before using as sprinkles on donuts.
5. Lasagna with garlic bread
How to make garlic bread:
- Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Take two pieces of French bread and cut them in half lengthwise, then place in a baking pan that is lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil with the cut side facing up (this will keep them from sticking).
- Lightly brush both sides of each piece with olive oil or melted butter, then sprinkle on some salt and freshly ground black pepper before putting them into the oven for 15 minutes until they are nice and browned on top.
6. Chocolate almond fudge brownies
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2/3 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt (optional)
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted in microwave for 30 seconds, then stirred until smooth. Add your favorite nuts or dried fruit if desired. I used chopped almonds and dried cranberries but any combination of nuts and/or fruits will do.
7. Spaghetti with meatballs and Caesar salad
Spaghetti and meatballs is a classic dish that you can easily make in advance and reheat. You can make the meatballs ahead of time and freeze them, or make them as you go along. The spaghetti can also be made ahead of time and refrigerated or frozen until ready to use.
8. Watermelon sliced in cubes
Watermelon is a refreshing fruit that is an excellent source of vitamin A and C. It’s also a good source of potassium and lycopene, which may help to prevent cancer. Watermelon is an excellent source of beta carotene, an antioxidant that helps slow aging.
Watermelon is also low in calories (about 50 for 1 cup/150 g) and contains no saturated fat or cholesterol. But beware: too much watermelon can lead to excessive urination as it contains high levels of sorbitol, a sugar alcohol that acts like artificial sweetener in your body but doesn’t provide the same calories as sugar would have provided naturally.
9. Chicken Marsala and rice pilaf
Here is the recipe for chicken marsala.
- 1 pound skinless boneless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
- 3 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 cup sliced onion
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1 cup dry white wine (or broth)
10. Brownies sundaes with chocolate sauce and nuts or almonds on top
Brownies are delicious, and you can make them with chocolate sauce. Chocolate sauce is also delicious, and it goes well with brownies.
So you can serve chocolate-sauce-topped brownies on a plate during postproduction with nuts or almonds sprinkled over the top. This is because nuts or almonds are also delicious, and they go well with chocolate-sauce-topped brownies.

In conclusion, we hope that this post helped you determine what foods to serve during post production. Remember, it is important to keep your eyes on the prize! Also, always check with your doctor before starting any new diet or exercise routine. Creating a tv storyboard can trigger hunger and if you are hungry your artistic vision gets blurry so it’s really obvious you need a best food during post-production.
