This course is for new and emerging producers based in Scotland.
Producer Accelerator is aimed at producers at the start of their careers who are looking to take that next step into the industry, but may need support in furthering their knowledge of the industry or expanding their skillset.
This course aims to inspire and invigorate the most dynamic, promising new producers in Scotland. The course will take place across four days in the form of two two-day workshops on Friday 26 and Saturday 27 of January, and Friday 1 and Saturday 2 March 2024.
Short Circuit will select up to eight applicants who will develop their producing skills and industry knowledge through in-person development workshops, masterclasses and one-on-one mentoring sessions. Participants will take part in training and networking sessions from industry speakers and will be matched with a carefully selected mentor that they will work over three months. There is no cost to participate in the programme.
Sessions include masterclasses on:
- Understanding the development process.
- Working with writers and directors.
- Managing talent relationships.
- Budgeting and financing.
- Legal and distribution.
- The lifecycle of a project from inception, through to physical production and delivery.

Producer Accelerator is an inclusive programme and we are aware that within the screen industry that Disabled and D/deaf people, people of the global majority, women, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex people (LGBTQI+) and those who have been socially and economically disadvantaged by their circumstances and upbringing are disproportionately marginalised.
We encourage applications from individuals who are currently under-represented within the sector and seek to foster equal opportunities for new and emerging talent from diverse backgrounds, with support on hand for those who need it.
