I found that using Adobe Media Encoder is much easier when just cropping. Add the video to the queue and open the export settings. On the source tab you can crop the video and there you can also enter how many pixels to remove at each side. Remember to set the correct output size in the video tab on the right side. Here is a screenshot showing how i did it: ...

As long as there are no union people on the job, it doesn't particularly matter how you do credits. There are plenty examples of both multiple credits to the same person or just doing the most general job they did (such as simplifying the roles of cinematographer, editor and director in to one role). I've personally done both on different projects and ...

I would take a look at some of tested.com's videos. They often have one guy do camera work and editing, and he is credited twice.

You can set the color you want to be passed, the tolerance, chose if you want softened edges ... Premiere basically can do everything you can wish for regarding color pass. But then ...

Jim Mack's answer hits on most of it, but you will also want to look at the term rotoscoping. Generally speaking, this kind of thing is a highly manual effort to get best results. If you can separate layers using green screen, then you can place distinct color elements in your black and white shot (or vice versa) but if they are all on the same shot, then ...

As you suggest, the scenes are shot in color. There isn't much of a special task for the director, it's almost completely a post-production challenge. In some cases a high contrast take can be made to assist in masking. This would be unusual for scenes involving actors, since the high-con pass wouldn't be well registered. It may also be possible in some ...
