About this Course

APPLICATIONS OPEN

*Shortlisting will take place over the summer
**Applicants may be offered an Interview which will take place in September.

Aimed at new producers and using key industry specialists, the Postgraduate Diploma in Advanced Producing is designed to give producers a comprehensive understanding of the script to screen process. It will address the following skills areas in a producer’s career development: the development process; financing; legal issues; budgeting and scheduling; production; post-production; management and negotiation skills; sales and distribution; festivals/markets and pitching. The modules are structured to build the skills necessary for market-ready producers.
Navigating the international film and television industry can be a daunting experience for emerging producers - a landscape of pitching, negotiation and co-production deal-making.
Graduates of the programme will gain the skills, confidence and connections to operate in this rapidly growing industry. The programme will encourage diversity and inclusion. Participants from all walks of life that have a passion for film and TV will have the opportunity to gain skills that will overcome any barriers they may have perceived or encountered in the past. As with any creative industry, it is important that there are voices from all sectors of life representing their own stories.
The programme content will be managed thought an on-line resource containing programme materials and recommended reading. The programme will equip up and coming producers with the skills identified by the industry to work in established production companies or to work independently in their own companies
