AFTRS Industry Certificate: Production Management (Scripted)

This is a practice-based course for emerging production managers, including production co-ordinators. It also offers essential knowledge for emerging producers who want to expand their knowledge of film and TV Drama. The course assumes that you have some production knowledge, and are competent using Excel.

This course is relevant for producers and aspiring production managers who wish to work on Scripted productions including short and feature films, TV drama series and narrative comedy.

All students will need a laptop with Excel installed for this course. You should also have a good familiarity with Excel before commencing the course. Please contact us if you do not have access to a laptop with Excel before enrolling in the course.

This course commences with a 4 day intensive (Thurs-Sun) at AFTRS in Sydney. Then over the subsequent 7 weeks there are 3 weekend workshops. Between these sessions there are weekly online video catch ups on Tuesday evenings which are recorded, and assignment work to complete (in the form of a Production Schedule and Budget).

For the online components of the course you will need access to a desktop or laptop computer with camera, sound and good internet connection for the evening Zoom Video sessions.

We recommend allowing 10 hours per week minimum to do the course work.
