Looking to start out in the world of production? Or maybe you've got experience as a runner but want to add another skill?
The 1 day Green Runner Production Training course gives a comprehensive overview of this new and increasingly in-demand role now that more and more productions are embracing elements of sustainability. The daily practicalities of the Green Runner position are explained along with an outline of basic sustainability issues - how an ethical approach to production can not only cut carbon but also cost.
As a Green Runner you'll be in a position that allows you to interact with every department on a production. It will be a chance to understand all the various crew roles and decide which is right for you. If you have little or no production experience don't worry. There are modules about the basic fundamentals of being a runner included.
Previous graduates of the course have moved rapidly on from being a Green Runner. It is a great stepping stone to moving up the production ladder.
