Ranking and student feedback
What does it take to be a Production Manager? Someone who can multi-task, be dynamic, communicate well and stay calm under pressure; is creative with budgets but keeps an eye on the bottom line; who knows enough about Health and Safety to protect the cast and crew but not detract from getting the right shot; who knows about the best locations at the best price – and who knows production from start to finish. Most production managers are freelance, moving from contract to contract, and may find themselves working anywhere in the UK or abroad. As a production manager, you could work for independent production companies on films, documentaries or TV shows, become a Line Producer or progress to Head of Production. Covering the key skills required in today’s rapidly-changing environment, this course alternates workshops with opportunities to gain practical experience on a range of productions including live and multi-camera TV entertainment shows, dramas, animation and documentary films.
You will be well-organised, effective under pressure, resourceful, problem-solving, computer-literate, financially-minded and have good leadership skills. You will probably already have some experience in the film industry, perhaps as a runner, PA, or in the production office, or you may have completed a degree in film-making. You may also have a background in business/financial management and be looking for a career change. While many applicants will have a degree from a British or overseas university, we will consider applicants who do not have a degree if they have an impressive portfolio, a creative track record or an alternative qualification. If you are not an EEA National, you must already be in possession of a UK visa valid for the duration of this course. We are unable to accept your application if you do not.
