This 1-week intensive course is aimed at new producers, professional producers who are currently working in traditional media, but looking to move into Virtual Production and anyone new to VP who wants to be a producer and understand the core fundamental skills and tasks using the latest technologies.

This course is available at a steep discount and runs for 1-week only during these three-week intervals and provides you with fast and easy access into the world of Virtual Production, through the producer lens, but also with support directly from one of our VP Production Supervisors.

To get started in producing specifically in Virtual Production, this course will introduce you to what virtual production is (and isn’t), what the benefits are of VP, VP workflows vs Traditional and what the VAD and OSVP are. You will also learn how to approach creative development including your production design and asset creation, how to run pre-viz and on-set workflow, but also look at the VP budgets and scheduling and how they differ to more traditional shoots.

All of this impactful knowledge will allow you to implement this into your next projects, upskill your way to a promotion or even launch yourself into an exciting new career.
