AMPIA Producer Accelerator Program

AMPIA invites emerging and mid-level producers to a two-day workshop at Red Deer College offering a hands-on program with guidance from industry professionals.

The workshop, taking place on October 20 and 21 of 2018, is designed to help emerging and mid-level producers build the foundation needed to take the next steps forward in their careers. Filmmakers will have the opportunity to attend professional workshops covering budgets, funding, marketing, career paths, company building and more. Speakers from different sectors of the Canadian and Alberta film, television and digital media industries (including representatives from DGC, ACTRA and NSI, among others) will provide attendees with hands-on experience in the following aspects of production:

  • Creating a shooting schedule, production board and film budget
  • Exploring the roles of Producer, Production Manager (PM) and Assistant Director (AD)
  • Examining the procedures, attitudes, techniques and paperwork needed to run both large and small productions
  • Working with the Canada Media Fund (CMF) for additional content funding for projects
  • Much more!
