This chapter examines the ethics, aesthetics, and techniques of collaborative post-production. 1 In ethnographic filmmaking, collaborative post-production is a multi-faceted process, and here we focus on on only one aspect, one generally associated with the final phases of editing: the soundtrack, be it with music, sound recordings, or with the human voice. We discuss the central role that collaboration takes in some ethnographic filmmaking, calling attention for its place not only in the production process, but also in the period of “post”-production, when the film is already partially or completely edited, and the soundtracks are finally introduced.
