The National Film and Television School (NFTS) has launched a new part time Post Production Supervision Certificate.
The course aims to offer insight and training into the practical elements for those seeking a career as a post production co-ordinator and provide them with a foundation to move swiftly up the career ladder.
It has been developed in consultation with Warner Media, HBO, Netflix, and the wider post production industry.
It will include five modules, including starting post production, picture post and sound post.
It will have an advisory board of people working within the industry, including:
- Cynthia Kanner, senior vice president of post production at WarnerMedia/HBOAccess who as launch partner, played a pivotal role in developing the course
- Alison Beckett, director of post production at Netflix in the UK with 15 years of experience in the sector
- Gemma Nicholson, who has 20 years of experience in different roles across film and television including post production and who will lead the course
The first intake of the 24 week certificate will start in January 2021 with an application deadline of 3rd October 2020. It will predominantly be delivered via a weekly Zoom webinar and through five face to face sessions taking place on a Saturday at the NFTS teaching space in Golden Square, London.
NFTS director Jon Wardle commented:“The NFTS is continuously identifying training gaps in the creative industries and we are thrilled to launch this pioneering new course, in partnership with WarnerMedia/HBOAccess and Netflix. No other training provision currently exists to provide a pathway into post production, a vitally important and underserviced sector of high end TV and film production. As the screen industry recovers, a new wave of rigorously trained post production co-ordinators and supervisors entering the sector will be critical to propelling it forward into a new era.”
