The role of Production Manager will involve working with the producer and handling the logistical side of the film. You need to be very organised, sensible, good at multi-tasking and work well with people. A basic working knowledge of MS Excel/ Google Docs would be good. You will be putting together call sheets, coordinating people, and liaising with all the other crew and department heads to make sure everything flows smoothly. You will also be working with the producer to tweak the schedule and budget as we go along. You will be present on set with us, as well as working in pre-production off-set. We will consider film students and people who need an opportunity to build up their experience.
Filming dates are 10 – 14 December as well as roughly 12 January – 20 February (final schedule is still being set and may vary slightly). We would prefer to have the same person across the whole timeframe of the production, but if you can only do some of the dates we will still consider you. If this is the case, then please let us know from when to when you are able to be with us. Priority will be given to anyone who can do the whole production.
The Production Manager would need to start working on this immediately. We won’t stop you doing other jobs and a lot of the pre-production work you can do from home. But once we enter actual production we will need you on set with us and those will be full days.
You will receive a Production Manager credit on the film and on IMDB. You will get 1% of profit share in the film (if you can only do certain dates, that 1% will be shared with the other PM’s). We cannot pay a money-fee, but your costs in relation to the film will be covered. Taking this into account we will accept students and people who need to build up their experience.
