Course for young talent in post and VFX
Creative Skillset is supporting a course to help young talent in post and VFX to develop their skills in client relationships and negotiating.
In response to industry needs in the regions, one-day courses targeted at junior and line producers in post and VFX are running in September in central locations in Bristol, Manchester and Glasgow, supported by Creative Skillset’s High-End TV (HETV) Levy fund.
The course is specifically designed for junior and line producers in post and VFX companies servicing HETV business. The cost is £75 per person.
Michelle James, Creative Skillset’s senior HETV manager, explains: “The idea is for young talent to come away with the skills, resources and, above all, the confidence to take a more informed and proactive approach to developing effective client relationships and handling negotiations as they progress in their role. This is all part of supporting the development of a world-class UK drama workforce.”
The course has been developed by Every Sense, an organisation that specialises in helping people and companies in the screen-based creative industries to grow, prosper and achieve their potential.
The course will be held in Bristol on 7th September, Manchester on 19th September and Glasgow on 21st September.
