This two hour crash course is designed to better equip communications departments and media producers to successfully complete their projects on budget, smoothly.

  • Budgeting international shoots and understanding how the locals charge
  • Laws around filming in various countries
  • Visas and permit applications
  • Carnets and customs bonds
  • Hiring local crew
  • Hiring local equipment
  • Working with fixers/local producers
  • Creating more accurate risk assessments
  • What to do when things go wrong

The course is intended to be an essential insight for experienced production offices and new communications employees alike based on up to date experience and real scenarios.
