Workshop Overview

The Island Film Factory has identified a shortage in these key technical positions for our local industry.   A recent survey circulated by Culture PEI confirmed the reports of our local producers.   To address this skills shortage, with participation from Skills PEI, the Island Film Factory will be hosting a series of workshops in February and March 2012 to help increase the knowledge of select Island applicants who have already shown initiative in the sector.  Classes will be small, intensive, mostly weekend workshops providing hands on experience under the direct tutelage of various film and TV professionals from around the region.

Specific workshops will include:  Director of Photography, Production Management,   Online Editing,  Editing for Drama, Editing for Comedy,  Grip/Gaffer Skills, Field Audio Recording and Sound Design for Film, TV and Digital Media.  In addition  to providing current industry professional development, the workshops will be an excellent opportunity to network with active, hiring producers on the Island.
