Introduction to Location Management
The Production Guild is holding a two-day course on 25 and 26 April to help those interested in a career in film and TV location management.
Introduction to Location Management aims to provide a detailed insight into all aspects of the role, including script breakdown, working with directors and designers, scouting locations and planning the shoot.
Towards the end of the two-day session, there will be a talk on how to be a successful and useful member of the department on set, taught by 1st AD Lydia Currie, who has worked on productions such as The Man Who Knew Infinity and 24: Live Another Day.
Perhaps the role and the course is best summed up by Lawrence herself: "The location department has a wide and varied remit within a film production; it's not glamorous but it is fun and an essential part of the overall film-making process. This course will give you a comprehensive introduction to working in the location department and the confidence to launch your location career in film and TV drama production."
The cost of this two-day intensive course at Pinewood Studios is £327.60 (inc VAT). Applicants should demonstrate a keenness and desire to work in the locations department.
The closing date for applications is 10 April 2015. For more information and an application form, click here.
