DIGITAL PRODUCTION CHALLENGE 2012 in PARIS – less than 2 weeks left to register!

DIGITAL PRODUCTION CHALLENGE enters its fourth year. The European workshop (in English) on digital production workflows, especially designed  for 40 producers, line producers, production managers and post production supervisors, will take place in Paris from 15 to 17 November 2012

Although digital technology is now part of everyday life, a plethora of workflows on one hand and a lack of lasting standards/supports on the other make it more complicated for producers to fulfill the demands of their partners (co-producers and distributors).

DPC enables professionals to get a better grasp of this complex environment, of the tasks division between the partners involved  - from the director to the post-production provider - and to acquire that shared language, thus granting them full access to the decision chain and guiding them to best position their productions within the digital workflow.

The workshop is divided into four parts:

- Case-studies of different budget ranges (special focus on low budget films and a "standard" budget around 2mio Euro) by experienced producers and their post-production providers;

- Presentation of selected participants' projects (feature or documentary films) and review by the experts;

- Discussions on key topics such as teamwork, digital distribution and archiving;

- Focus subjects on selected technical aspects.

DIGITAL PRODUCTION CHALLENGE is proposed, in English, by FOCAL in co-operation with FICAM, Digimage Cinema, Swiss Effects, Ile de France Film Commission, TSF and with support by the MEDIA Programme of the European Union.

Fee: 450 Euro, including 2,5 day full board accommodation (excluding travel), 300€ (excl. travel & accommodation). Some scholarships are available for certain countries. More information on the website: www.digiprodchallenge.net. 

For additional questions please contact: Sophie Bourdon, sophie.bourdon@focal.ch
