NFTS is launching a new part time blended learning course, for those looking to develop their career within Post Production Supervision. WarnerMedia/HBOAccess and Netflix have partnered with the School, helping it develop and launch the Post Production Supervision certificate course which has been specifically designed to meet the demand for more trained Post co-ordinators and supervisors working within the high end television and film industry.
This new part-time Certificate course delivered in partnership with WarnerMedia/HBOAccess and Netflix is designed to give students a grounding in all the different areas that are key in post management. From technical, scheduling and budgetary information and experience to building relationships within the industry. This course has been put together in consultation with Warner Media, HBO, Netflix, Post-Super.com, Post Management professionals and the wider industry to make sure that we have a new wave of properly trained Post Co-ordinators and Post Supervisors to embrace the increased workload of content that has emerged. It takes time to build experience in Post Production, but this course offers rigorous training and insight into the practical elements of the job, arming students with the skills and knowledge needed to hit the ground running as a Post Production Coordinator who will be quickly ready to move up the ladder.
This blended learning course will be predominantly delivered online via a weekly webinar and through five face to face Saturdays at the NFTS base in Golden Square, London, where we will teach the elements needed to develop a career in Post, with insight from influential industry figures along the way. The course will be led by industry professional Gemma Nicholson of Post-Super.com, who has 20 years of experience in different roles across film and television including post production.
All students will have access to Masterclasses from industry experts and all graduates have the opportunity to build a brilliant list of industry contacts and relevant skills required for a successful career. The course has an advisory board which includes senior members of the post production community including Cynthia Kanner, Senior Vice President of Post Production at WarnerMedia/HBOAccess, and Alison Beckett, Director of Post Production UK & EMEA for Netflix. Members of the advisory board will deliver special Masterclasses as part of the course. As part of the NFTS’ commitment to furthering diversity and inclusion within the UK film and television industry, with support from course partners, the School will provide financial assistance both in terms of scholarship and bursary support to enable successful applicants who are facing economic barriers to training and applicants from under-represented communities to join the course and participate in the in-person events in London. This includes support for the course fee, as well as travel and personal expenses.
The deadline to apply for this course is Saturday 3 October for a January 2021 start. The school will be holding a dedicated Masterclass and Q&A session on Monday 14 September from 5.00pm – 6.30pm and booking is now open via the website. This online event will hear NFTS Director, Dr Jon Wardle in discussion with Cynthia Kanner, Senior Vice President of Post Production at WarnerMedia/HBOAccess, Alison Beckett, Director of Post Production UK & EMEA for Netflix and course leader Gemma Nicholson of Post-Super.com.
