21st June 2014 EP2C Post-Production Workshop 
Go »
Vienna 23-28 October 2014

EP2C is a project based workshop, mainly designed for producers and dedicated to post-production management. The workshop is also open to post-production supervisors. During one week, technical, financial and artistic post-production challenges are addressed in lectures, group sessions and individual meetings.

Once a year, the workshop welcomes 22 participants and some 20 international experts specialised in various aspects of post-production and international co-productions. EP2C was created in 2009 in the firm belief that a well-scheduled, well-budgeted, well-run post-production, apart from saving the producer a lot of work, time, and money, will most of all protect the film from unnecessary artistic compromise. Producers come with a feature film project (fiction or documentary at development stage) on which they will work with the experts for a week.

Post-production supervisors are assigned to producers' projects. The workshop gives them an opportunity to share experiences and talk about methods used in their countries.
