Workshop: budgeting for series producers with Maddy Allen
This week-long workshop is aimed at series producers who are looking to get a better understanding of how budgets are created and managed.
It is designed to give a fuller understanding of the budget, along with its constraints and opportunities, whilst also shining a light on the pressure upon production companies and producers in the face of ever diminishing broadcaster funding.
By the end of the course, the aim is for you to feel confident in working with your team to manage the budget to maximise production values whilst meeting production company financial targets.
As there are only a limited number of places, tickets will be allocated via application. Please be sure you can commit to attending the full programme before you apply:
Applications will close at noon on Sunday 6th September with notifications to successful applicants being made before the weekend.
