Navigating Challenges In Production Management

Production Management can be one of the toughest places to be on a film. Everything from day to day responsibilities to the constant flow of communication can come with many challenges. In this circle, we will be going through all of the tools you need to to navigate common challenges and grow in production management. We’ll cover everything from advocating for yourself to interfacing with difficult personalities. We’ll also have room to talk about any specific challenges individuals have faced and advice on how to handle them. I’m also happy to meet with anyone 1:1 if desired.
