New Orleans -Managing Film Budgets and Production Costs
May 9, 2011 Leave a comment
My final series of workshops are coming up in New Orleans. I’ll be delivering three workshops over three days. Here’s the one for Line Producers, Emerging Producers, or just anyone who wants to learn more about managing film budgets and costs – Sunday, May 22nd in New Orleans
The attendees will review a $9Mil budget from several angles, learning the practical methods of managing a film budget used by film producers and production accountants everywhere. From that very important step, we practice the essential steps in controlling and reporting the production costs through the Weekly Cost Report – this report is fundamental to ALL media-based productions, and is reviewed weekly by the completion guarantors, the financiers, the studios, etc. In addition you will be introduced to the 6 basic ways that you can use to control the costs before they are spent.
The workshop is delivered by John Gaskin, a production accountant who has 25 years experience working on over 45 film and television productions of every size, in 5 different countries. John is also an author of a book used in the mentoring program at AFI, the U. of S.Calif’s producer program, and the U. of Tampa’s producer program.
The workshop will be held on Sunday, May 22nd in New Orleans. It counts as 8 hours of Continuing Professional Education.
