PGA CAPITAL REGION PRESENTS:
A LINE PRODUCING 2-DAY PROGRAM BY MAUREEN A. RYAN
This 2-day training course will teach members the essential skills of Line Producing – from pre-production through post-production. This step-by-step workshop focuses on what you need to know to line produce LOW BUDGET INDEPENDENT SCRIPTED projects, NOT studio films, network films/television or reality shows. Throughout the two days, you’ll learn how to breakdown a script, schedule and budget for low budget scripted film projects. Post-production topics will include deliverables and licensing. This is not an intro class – the expectation is that you know how to create/read a simple budget. The seminar is taught by PGA member/Producer Maureen A. Ryan.
*Please note there will be a homework assignment given out at end of Saturday in preparation for Sunday’s curriculum.
Dates: Saturday & Sunday, March 9 & 10, 2019
Time: 10:00 am-5:00 pm each day
Each day will include an hour for walkaway lunch
Coffee, Tea and Water will be provided each morning
