Movie Magic Scheduling

Duration: 1 day

The creation of an effective and efficient schedule is crucial for any production and this course will take you from the start to the finish. Beginning with breaking down a drama script into elements, we will learn the key drivers of a great schedule and will have a step by step interactive introduction to Movie Magic 6 scheduling software. We will create a production schedule and learn how to manipulate it according to changes in a production. This course will also look at real-life problems that can occur on a drama shoot and how a first assistant director or production manager can handle them effectively.
