First generation of producers graduates today

The first generation of Victoria University’s Professional Certificate in Executive  Screen Production will graduate today.

“SPAA indicated that there was a gap in the market for executive skills such as legal and financial knowledge in particular and agreed to recommend an advisory committee in Melbourne to inform the creation of the course,” research program coordinator Pamela Wilson Endrina told Encore.

The course originated from an approach made by Wilson Endrina and her manager, Sue Marshall, on behalf of the Sir Zelman Cowen Centre – part of the Faculty of Business and Law at Victoria University)  to SPAA executive Geoff Brown, regarding the need for better producer education in Australia.

SPAA does not endorse the course, but has been acting in consultation to formulate the curriculum. The certificate was first conducted in July; teachers and lecturers included Jenny Lalor, entertainment lawyer Shaun Miller (Marshall and Dent), Alan Finney, Robert De Young and John Endrina, among others.

The course was available in Melbourne, and will be offered in Sydney in November.
