About the workshop
This course’s main focus will be on working with the City of Winnipeg to acquire permits and permission, as well as preserving locations, when shooting. The instructors will cover all aspects of assisting people in navigating through the City to get the necessary permissions and permits needed. You will learn about managing locations and using best practices while developing communication tools for challenging situations that may arise on site.

This workshop will help you to identify immediate steps to be taken in the event of dangerous scenarios, and managing people in stressful situations. Our instructors will provide ideas and solutions for preserving our urban and rural locations. As well as maintaining a good relationship with the community and neighboring residences during production shoots.

Our community wishes to ensure that all productions are able to provide a safe space for our crews and for location departments to continue doing the amazing work they do.

There will also be an opportunity to share you ideas and to ask questions during the workshop.
