Course Profile

This course runs on Saturday, 6th August and Sunday, 7th August.

This 2 day course is run by the National Talent Academy: Film & TV Crew South and is intended for those interested in working in the Locations Department, or have some experience and would like to upskill in this area.

The Irish Film & TV Industry is growing at a significant rate and the need for set ready new entrants has never been greater. 

While the course focuses on the practical skills required to fulfil this role, it will be delivered in the context of the importance of the soft skills that are so critical in a role that interacts with so many different people, in so many different ways.

Participants will get pointers to sources of more detailed information about legal and quasi-legal issues that impact on their role and they will develop checklists and toolkits which will help them to develop procedures and habits that will enhance their effectiveness as Locations Trainees when they are working on set.

Course Content
  • Overview of the Locations Department

  • The Law; how and where it impacts on the Locations Department

Prior to the course, the tutor will contact each participant to get an understanding of their prior experience and what they want to get from the course. Participants will complete questionnaires to help them understand their own learning styles and their conflict management styles.
