Manage Your Production!

Home  /  Workshops  /  Past  /  Current Page

You have the great idea, script, actors – now it’s time to actually make it. But to be a successful producer, you need to know how to manage your production and how it is performing with respect to budgeting, scheduling and cash flow. Beginners in this process usually use a spreadsheet software of some kind, along with some word documents, contracts, calculators, etc… but they are limiting, confusing, and can add time and money to the project. Award-winning New Zealand producer Bailey Mackey goes through his experiences in managing his productions and why he created KAHA – a production management tool to streamline the clutter of production.

Manage Your Production is a workshop that goes through the process of understanding, planning and making a production, with a focus on using specific production tools, like KAHA, in order to streamline the process.

**Attendees of this workshop will get a free month of the production software KAHA to use for their next production.**

Who should attend:  Producers, and anyone wanting to know about managing a production and tools that can make it easier.

Requirements: Something for notes, and a computer so you can trial the software.

By the end of this Workshop, you will know:

  1. Production management tips that will help you create and manage your production.
  2. Why it is important to understand budgets, schedules and cashflows in real-time.
  3. About a new production management software that is providing real time critical information to producers
