“A true leader has the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions, and the compassion to listen to the needs of others. He does not set out to be a leader, but becomes one by the equality of his actions and the integrity of his intent.” Douglas Mc Arthur
This Program Certificate in Project Management of Film and Television course is designed to give aspiring budding production managers a head start to launch a career in film or TV production.
