An integrated approach to film financial management for production teams.

This course, run by MoneyPenny, is aimed at emerging producers or experienced producers who want a clearer understanding of the international standards applied to the financial management of films. This 6 hour program is intended to demystify the balance sheet or statement of investors' funds and give producers a clear understanding of how the expectations of the NZFC, the completion guarantors, the lenders and private investors can be met.
