2-day Producer Workshop with Margaret Tillson
8-9 Dec, 2018, Western Plains Cultural Centre, Dubbo
Includes Lunch

Do you make videos, short films, music videos, or screen content for online? Then this is the course for you.

You may not call yourself a producer, but if you are making the content, organising the interviews or actors, putting it online, entering into festivals – then you are performing the role of a producer and the buck stops with you.

As a content maker/producer, you need to be aware of your legal obligations regarding cast & crew (including volunteers), insurance, copyright, permissions, screen credits, and so much more.

This will be a practical workshop where participants will take a short film script and get it ready for production, with filming taking place in January 2019.

Participants can nominate to be a producer of 1 of 4 short film projects*. This is a great opportunity to receive a producing credit on a finished short film and have a completed project to add to your show-reel.

Note: You do not need to nominate as a producer to do this workshop.

Topics covered:

What is a producer? Understanding your role and responsibilities.
Steps to producing a short film
Copyright & Legals; from agreements to release forms and all your on-set paperwork
Hiring cast and crew
Shooting schedules
Post Production & Delivery
