What Is It?
The Film Commission Professional is a one-day course that builds on the information presented in Film Commission Fundamentals by providing more in-depth information on several of the most important elements involved in film commission work. The course content for each section of the course was developed by a professional in that field and the course itself will be taught using lecture and small group session formats.
Who should take it?
This course must be taken by a member of a commission that is seeking full membership in the AFCI, as completion of this course and Film Commission Fundamentals is required for AFCI membership. The course is also designed for those interested in acquiring more knowledge about film commission work, particularly those who aspire to a career as a film commission staff member. Finally, anyone who wishes to enroll in the AFCI Certified Film Commissioner Program must first complete Film Commission Professional unless they can demonstrate that they have taken Film Commission Fundamentals prior to 2007.
What will you learn?
Students in this course will explore important topics in greater depth including the business aspects of film production, effective marketing techniques, economic development impact and reporting, and the importance of alliances and partnerships such as working with crew, guilds, unions and economic development officials.
What you need to know
The Film Commission Professional will be offered as a part of Cineposium 2012 and Locations 2012.
