Production Manager Workshop Factual TV

This comprehensive course covers all aspects of the Production Manager’s role from pre-production to post within the factual TV genre. It takes the form of tutorials, group discussions and offsite exercises allowing participants to put into practice the skills they have learnt.

You will be taught in a classroom environment for 2 days covering all aspects of Production Management with an emphasis on interaction, shared experience and a thorough foundation of the skills required for one of the most exciting and rewarding jobs within TV and film.

At the end of the two days you will be given a brief for a shoot that you will need to manage. Working offsite (using your unique login to our server) you will create a full shooting pack and workflow for a new production.

This will then be assessed by the tutor and other participants in a one-day overview classroom session. You will also have access to the tutor after the training has ended for additional support.

Who’s it for?
