The NPA Nine Point Producer Training was created to
actively stimulate the development of new filmmakers in the UK,
equipping the next generation of British talent with the skills and
information needed to enable them to compete within a world market.
Designed to provide the new film producer with a thorough grounding in
every aspect of feature producing from initial idea through to
completion and final delivery.
Each month over a ten month period, the Producer
Training delivers seminars and lectures followed by open discussions
with invited speakers and panel members from within the film industry.
Working with a structured syllabus, this course aims to encourage
professional practice in the entertainment industry, through the
encouragement of four key elements of a producer's skills base:
