Producer's Foundation Certificate!
Posted 03 November 2009 - 10:05 AM
To produce a film is to be the ringleader of the circus, the person keeping all the spinning plates up in the air. It is arguably the most confusing and difficult part of the filmmaking process with the least amount of job definition.

Who accredits your "certificate"? In what circles does it have recognised weight?
Is the Film Council link some sort of attempt to imply your organisation has links with them?
You list yourself as a "producer"; what is your experience in the role that qualifies you to run such a course? Your IMDB listing is sparse in the extreme.
And last of all: what possible value does an independent producing course have in the UK?

In 30 years I heard some BS from producers, this 'foundation course' takes the biscuit.

He left out the class on selling snake oil.
Oh no I think he's quite good at that
