About the Producer’s Foundation Certificate
The Producer’s Foundation Certificate is a five-part evening course comprised of classes which each deal with a different aspect, process, or skill involved in producing films.
Producers have control over almost every aspect of a film’s production. They bring together and/or authorise the production team, including the director, director of photography, production designer and major cast members. The producer’s primary responsibility is to build an environment where the film’s cast and crew can thrive. They guide the film from conception to distribution and beyond.
*Each of the five classes can also be taken individually.
