Tom Kane, a highly successful film producer, who has 30 years experience in the “business” and over 42 feature and television films and TV series to his credit, has taught this workshop worldwide. Cities that have hosted Tom’s film workshop include:

Students explore the roles of the Producer, Production Manager (UPM) and Assistant Director (AD). They examine the procedures, attitudes, techniques and paperwork needed to plan and run a large or small film production. Students will scout locations, break down a feature film script, create a production board, shooting schedule, day-out-of-days, and film budget.

Useful handouts, reference lists and samples of film production forms will be provided. The material covered is applicable to high and low budget features and both corporate and video projects. The course includes a copy of John Huston’s screenplay, “Prizzi’s Honor,” (Jack Nicholson) and Louis L’Amour’s “Crossfire Trail” (Tom Selleck), the bases of the workshop. You’ll work directly with Tom Kane – Producer/ Director / UPM / AD – as you learn from his philosophy, experience and anecdotes.
