WarnerMedia/HBOAccess and Netflix have partnered with the National Film and Television School, helping it develop and launch the Post Production Supervision Certificate. The course will tutor students in technical, scheduling and budgetary information and how to build relationships within the industry.
As part of the NFTS’ commitment to furthering diversity and inclusion within the film and television industry, the school will provide financial assistance to successful applicants from under-represented communities.
The first intake of the program will start in January. “No other training provision currently exists to provide a pathway into post production, a vitally important and under serviced sector of high-end TV and film production,” NFTS director Jon Wardle commented. “As the screen industry recovers, a new wave of rigorously trained post co-ordinators and supervisors entering the sector will be critical to propelling it forward into a new era.”
WarnerMedia SVP post production, Cynthia Kanner added: “The new certificate program will provide detailed post production instruction and a new path for bringing people from diverse backgrounds into the industry.”
