Production for Dummies—Brussels

01 October 2020 - On & For


On & For: Production for Dummies is a workshop on the basics of production for students, graduates, and emerging artists’ moving image makers. It will address such questions as how to find a production platform for their film, how to define the relationship between themselves and the producer, how to make a budget or determine a suitable calendar for the production process, etc.

Production for Dummies invites you to come prepared with questions to ask our experts! Upon registration, we invite you to submit two questions that you would like to be answered. You may, of course, also ask questions at the workshop itself.

Production for Dummies will map out a general overview of the regional (Brussels) and national (Belgium) production landscape, promoting local open calls and support networks. Atelier Graphoui and ARGOS will present and discuss their knowledge and experience in production, their studios and facilities, and how they support artists.

Production for Dummies will be given by Andrea Cinel (Head Curator at ARGOS) and Ellen Meiresonne (Production Manager at Atelier Graphoui) in autumn 2020.

It is yet to be seen if this event can be live or not. We will follow the then current safety recommendations. The date and registration for the autumn event will be launched after the summer.
