PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT AND FUTURE EXPECTATIONS
As noted before, one can access the world of production through different paths.
And once we make up our minds about becoming Production Coordinators we will be able to learn whilst performing our jobs.
Production Coordinators get most of their training following other more experienced Production Coordinators or Heads of Production, attending courses and talks or studying a specialised Masters degree.
En algunas empresas, en particular las más grandes, las oportunidades de capacitación se ofrecen casi exclusivamente internamente.
It is likely that anyone wanting to become a Production Coordinator starts as a PA or trainee. The film industry is very competitive and one must be prepared to break through it.
There is not a determined path for professional development and as most Production Coordinators work on a freelance base makes this journey quite unpredictable.
The progress of an aspiring Production Coordinator will depend on his or her motivation, persistence and abilities working as part of a team.
Success arrives often when identifying good job opportunities, using contacts, making positive impressions and basically being in the right place at the right moment.
You need to show that you are constantly developing more skills and that you have gained a lot of experience along the way.
You can advance to roles as a senior production coordinator or production manager, focusing more on financial management and budget management.
