PRODUCTION WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT

WEEKEND WORKSHOP #1

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 23 & SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2019:

PRODUCTION OFFICE PROTOCOL, PAPERWORK, AND POLITICS.
BREAKING INTO THE MOVIE INDUSTRY AS AN OFFICE P.A.!

Any project’s production office constantly vibrates as the nerve center of the production – from the biggest blockbuster to the smallest micro budget! Learn the basics of navigating the production office from a Memphian who’s just wrapped the latest multi-million dollar film to base in Memphis: NETFLIX’S “Uncorked”! Meet the Professor: Production Manager/Production Coordinator Kevin Ivey! Kevin’s other recent production credits include the CMT series, “Sun Records,” Tom Shadyac’s “Brian Banks,” NBC’s “This is Us,” and OWN‘s “Greenleaf.”
