Testimonial – Things Harvard Never Taught You – Film Accounting
October 16, 2010 Leave a comment
John Gaskin is, in my opinion, a pioneer. Never before have I seen such a well thought out course that offers a non-accountant with the tools to walk the talk of film accounting lingo when dealing with producers and studio execs. John’s materials are pure gold and his extensive experience in the film industry as a production accountant makes him a great role model. And he’s a really nice guy, too! What more could you ask for when taking a course on a topic that is seemingly shrouded in mystery. John demystifies it all and his course is also a fun opportunity to meet interesting people and make permanent friends in the industry.
John knows from experience how to walk the talk and he gives you practical examples of what exactly the production manager, the producer, and the studio executives expect from the production accountant. And John reminds us that ethical behaviour is a cornerstone to success because he knows that our longevity in this business depends on it.
Harvard Never Taught You
In this course, we get a rare glimpse inside the accounting aspects of the film industry, a field that the creative artists may shy away from but ignore at their own peril. And John makes the material easy enough for anyone to understand so if you’re a non-accountant, don’t be afraid of this course. It won’t give you a headache, I guarantee. And if you happen to be an MBA, there are things in this course that Harvard never taught you.
John loves his work and it shows and I’m glad to have met him. He’s here to break down the budgets and the cost reports that govern the filmmaking process into easy to understand components. It was an absolute pleasure to be one of John’s students and he gives back because John sincerely wants us all to succeed in the film industry, making profits as well as art.
