Production Value 2018
The European Scheduling & Budgeting Workshop

Now heading for its 12th edition, Production Value is an eight-day residential Workshop on scheduling and budgeting European feature films and TV series with budgets ranging from 2.5 to over 10 million Euro. Working in teams of two, junior line producers and junior assistant directors from all over Europe are assigned real projects in development, as brought to the workshop by their directors and producers. Teams are coached by top-level European line producers and assistant directors. Additional experts in visual effects and post-production are part of the process. Directors and producers of the projects play an important part: they join the workshop towards the end to discuss the various concepts, options and results. The workshop is completed both by plenary sessions devoted to general topics related to line producing and assistant directing, and by case studies by the seniors.

The objectives of Production Value are the improvement of best practice in Europe in the fields of assistant directing and line producing, as well as the consolidation of a network of professionals sharing the same values and similar experience. Emphasis is placed on understanding different European working conditions. A growing success initiative within the European film industry, Production Value is the only training program addressing this segment, and its working process is a unique training experience that you won’t forget!
