About This Class

The Art of Production is based on conceptualization, prioritizing, scale and process. It is about making dreams come true and bringing them to fruition. It is about seeing a chasm and building a bridge across that chasm. Having worked across countless media formats I use all of our collective learning and experience to scale projects from small to large in similar ways. I hope to show you how it can be done. This class is created to imagine, think and then do.

This course had a lot of great practical advice and ideas that really helped me understand the mindset I need when I start working on my own production in a few months. Worthwhile course! Thank you!
It was a little more basic information than I was looking for but it still has some great tips especially about location scouting. It is a great introduction class for beginners. And I would love to see more classes from the teacher, especially about lighting.
This class helped me to understand the "logistics" of what is needed to produce a film. If you need a quick overview of how to begin producing and filming your project, this is the class for you.

Trying to figure it all out





Phillip Wong


Producing is simple. It's about getting things done.

There is so much in the world that needs doing, in so many directions and so many options and so many interests. The question is: How to start and how fast to finish. And then: How to do it well.

Perfection is great, but we have to realize that we will never get there. We can count grains of sand but what is the point? But doing it faster and more efficiently, allows us to attempt more projects, succeed with more projects and leave the world a better place.

I recently started film production utilizing techniques and tools I had gained from photography, editorial and live event production.  I'd like to share some of those thoughts with you here on Skillshare.
