Now going for its 7th edition, Production Value is an eight-day residential workshop on scheduling and budgeting
European feature films with budgets ranging from 2,5 to over 10 million Euro.
Working in teams of two, Junior Line Producers and Junior Assistant-Directors from all over Europe are assigned real projects in development, brought to the workshop by their Directors and Producers. The teams are coached by top-level European Line Producers and 1st Assistant-Directors. Emphasis is on understanding different working conditions in Europe, and on the best practical and creative solutions. That’s what makes Production Value so special. Directors and Producers of the projects play an important part in the process: they join the workshop towards the end to discuss the various concepts, options and results. The workshop is completed by plenary sessions dedicated to general topics related to line producing and assistant directing, as well as case studies by the Seniors. A growing success initiative within the European film industry, Production Value is also a unique training model involving a situation so close to the real conditions that you won’t forget!
This year again, we reduced the participation fee for independent technicians and we offer four scholarships to participants from one of the twelve new EU member states (Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia) or from Croatia or from Bosnia and Herzegovina.
This 8-day European training workshop is proposed by FOCAL (Switzerland), the Swedish Film Institute, the Austrian Film Institute and the Norwegian Film Institute and supported by MEDIA Training and the Canton of Valais (Switzerland).
