Advertising Production Masterclass (Open Enrollment)

Optimize Your Content Creation
(Full-Day Workshop)

Marketers struggle to stretch their limited production budgets because they must contend with a complex media ecosystem. By understanding the ins and outs of the production process and by knowing what drives the cost of producing your content assets, you are empowered to make better production decisions. This awareness also makes it easier for you to budget for all media and choose the appropriate agency and production partners according to the media channel necessary (production tiers). Ultimately, it is the partners you choose that are vital to your production efficiency, effectiveness, and ROI.

This masterclass will cover the phases of production, best practices and clarify your own role and responsibilities in the creation of content for any media type. Attendees will learn the basics of how different content is created and that who creates it will directly affect usage rights and sharing across all channels (production company vs. photographer, union vs. non-union, etc).

This workshop is engaging with discussions, interactive group activities, and case studies. Throughout the session, you will discover how to maximize your ROI and think strategically about your production projects.
