Why a production company?

It gives you the power to take control. In order to have a successful production company, you need to understand the role of the producer and how they fit within the industry. This online workshop will provide valuable pointers on what it takes to create a production company.

In this six-week intensive online course, you'll learn exactly what's necessary to hang your shingle in Hollywood. From materials needed to networking, you'll get valuable tips that will help you structure your company, find and option material, work with writers and talent, and create your network of industry pros. Let ESE walk you through step by step.

  • Each week a new lecture, handouts and assignments are revealed so you can work at your own pace 24/7
  • Focus on the kinds of movies and stories you want to make
  • Learn about the Production Company and Producer's role

"During our courses, you'll have one-on-one interface with both of us. We'll offer feedback on all your assignments and best of all you can ask us anything you want about the business and we'll do our best to answer. Our mission - to help you succeed!" - Rona Edwards & Monika Skerbelis on ESE Film Workshops Online
