Are you interested in the film and television industry and want to know more about the location department? Then this two-day workshop is for you. Film Training Manitoba is holding an in-depth locations workshop aimed at those who are interested in learning more about this dynamic department.

Led by two experienced location managers, Michael Cowles and Cathie Edgar, topics covered will include:

  • Locations Department Overview
  • City Regulations and Permits
  • Goodwill and PR – Keeping the neighbours happy and protecting the location.
  • Traffic Control
  • Maps and Arrows – How we use them.
  • Building the Locations Truck
