This unique 12 month part-time diploma course, delivered in partnership with the Production Guild, aims to equip students with the skills required for a career as a film or television Production Accountant.

This London-based course aims to give students the expertise to succeed in this demanding role, as well as the opportunity to make key contacts to move to a career in the film and television sector. Each student will complete 10 days of work experience or production shadowing as part of the course.

What you will study

This course is ideally suited for those already working in a finance/accountancy role and who are keen to move into the film and television sector. Production Accountants calculate finances, work out the cost of a production, communicate with financiers (companies or individuals who provide the funding) and control the cash flow, or spending. This is a demanding role that requires a level head, self-confidence and strong communication skills.

In pre-production, Production Accountants help the Producers and Production Managers to prepare budgets and Estimated Final Cost Reports. During production, they oversee all payments, manage payroll, petty cash and foreign currency and keep accurate financial records. They help monitor budgets, analyse spending and provide daily or weekly cost reports. They also produce cost forecasts to evaluate the impact of any production changes.
