As creative industries production manager, you will take responsibility for all the organisational aspects of production schedule and budget. You may work in a production office, on set or on stage, in a studio or on location in the UK or internationally. Your role will vary according to the part of the production process you choose to work and specialise in. In production, you will support the creative team’s vision, working with the producer, the director, writer, set designer, costume supervisor, theatre technicians, sound recordist, VFX supervisor, animation supervisor and/or camera crew. You are responsible for the practicalities of running a production; including the preparation of schedules or script breakdowns, to ensure that enough time is allocated for all aspects of the process. In post production and VFX, you will provide the link between the production company and the supplier to deliver people and resources to complete the project.
