A good understanding of Final Draft is essential for anyone looking to get ahead in high-end TV production. But whilst a partial working knowledge can be achieved on the job, getting to grips with the software’s finer points needs the kind of focus that’s hard to come by in a busy production office.

So the ScreenSkills High-end TV Skills Fund has put together a free fully funded Final Draft training programme for junior to mid-level crew working in high-end TV (it is NOT aimed at non-scripted crew this time).

The two day course will be held on weekends, with 20 spaces available per group, per month except August). All of the training sessions will take place via zoom except the first session which will be delivered face-to-face in Central London.

Course leaders Imogen Gay and Rosie Dias will guide you through a wide variety of topics, including coloured amendment pages, beat boards, batch changes, creating reports and much more.

Attendees will also have access to pre-recorded interviews with key industry figures such as script supervisors, script coordinators, writers and script editors – and you will receive a Padlet of great resources.

If you don’t have Final Draft, we will ask you to download a free trial version, but don’t do this until the first day of your course.

This programme is funded by the ScreenSkills High-end TV Skills Fund made up of contributions from UK high-end TV productions.
