Production Office Automation | Free Virtual Workshop | April 8, 2022

Production Office Automation

Free Virtual Workshop


Filmmaking can be an incredibly satisfying endeavor but also quite demanding with the speed and responsibilities required. And, for the production office – the communication hub of every set – making sure it’s a well-oiled machine is of the utmost importance. This is why most modern productions rely upon production office automation (POA) tools to help make their teams more efficient and get ahead of issues that may cost more money in the long run.

In this workshop geared towards emerging filmmakers (or tech-averse filmmakers), you will learn the many benefits of POA, including how these systems can save you time, keep the IP and personal data of your show secure, reduce your carbon footprint, and overall help alleviate stress when time & money is of the essence. Participants will be encouraged to ask questions throughout.
