Top Master's Degrees in Production in Europe 2017. Producing Educating producers is high on the agenda at the NFTS, and the involvement of several of the UK’s leading film and television producers – NFTS Director Nik Powell, and governors Duncan Kenworthy and Simon Relph – ensures that students enjoy close links with the film and television industry. This course commences in January each year. The MA course in Producing is unique in the opportunities it gives and in its close links with the film and television industry, and provides a fast-track route into a producing career. Students develop their own relationships with successful producers through placements and a mentoring scheme. The BFI is supporting the course with development slate funding for students’ adaptation projects, which they can then take with them and develop further when they graduate from the School. The Producing department aims to train creative, independent producers able to achieve an overall vision for their projects from script development through finance and production to sales and distribution. The course covers fiction production for both film and television and also animation, with students producing at least two short live action films and one animation in their time at the School. Graduates work as producers of both film and television in the UK and other countries. New graduates typically combine first feature development with paid employment such as Assistant Producer on feature films, working in the development department of independent production companies, or producing short commissions for broadcasters. Deals struck with the BBC and other companies can see proposals from new graduates developed as feature films. TUTORS Some of the UK's leading independent producers teach at the NFTS including, Karin Bamborough (Former Channel 4 Commissioning Editor), Myf Hopkins (Tombraider II (digital animation and visual effects) and Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (Creatures Producer).

The NFTS provides producers with privileged access to events and screenings at the London Film Festival where they have the opportunity not only to see the latest films but also to discuss them and meet other filmmakers as well. Each year a number of outside visits are arranged for producers. Unlike other schools, all production costs are met by the School. In addition you will be given a cash Production Budget.
