Movie Magic Scheduling

The creation of an effective and efficient schedule is crucial for any production and this course will take you from the start to the finish. Beginning with breaking down a drama script into elements, we will learn the key drivers of a great schedule and will have a step by step interactive introduction to Movie Magic 6 scheduling software. We will create a production schedule and learn how to manipulate it according to changes within a production. This course will also look at real life problems that can occur on a drama shoot and how as a 1st AD or PM we can handle them effectively.
