Veteran movie producer Michael Flannigan (Mad Money, The Black Dahlia) takes students on a four-week, department-by-department tour of how movies really get made. This film industry training course is designed for people seeking jobs in -- or a career transition to -- the movie and TV industry.
Flannigan has taught the course twice at the Robinson Film Center, and has received great feedback from former students. Here is some of what they said:
"I felt very fortunate to get the expertise of someone like Michael Flannigan, whose had so much experience in the industry. I loved how down-to-earth and informal his teaching style was. That made him very relatable to me."
"My goal was to find the right info to help my job search. I have wanted to get in this business for a long time and did not know enough about it to find the right way in. Yes. Now I know exactly what I need to do. I got the empowerment tools I need."
"I would definitely recommend this course to friends and colleagues because how often in the Shreveport-Bossier City area do we have an opportunity to learn about film production from an actual, veteran big budget film producer? His knowledge was invaluable to us."
