Workshop Description: 

(Film Co-op Members are required to take this workshop before they direct/produce their own projects through the Film Co-op)

The production manager on an independent production wears many hats in contrast to a commercial production. This workshop will cover: being hired as a volunteer PM, budgeting and breakdowns; setting up the production office where ever that may be; hiring volunteer crew with the director; workspace organization; production scheduling; locations, daily production reports; location management; petty cash; deal memos; cast contracts, craft services and much, much more!

First ADs must be authoritative team-leaders and motivators, whilst also being approachable team players. They need exceptional organizational and time-management skills. The ability to plan ahead, trouble-shoot and pay close attention to detail is vital. Overall, they provide the key link between the Director, the cast and the crew, whilst also liaising with the production office, and providing regular progress reports about the shoot.
