Our full training programme

I regularly use the Production Guild’s availability service when looking for experienced and talented production crew because I often need professionals at short notice with the appropriate skills in TV drama. Being kept up to date about production issues such as holiday pay calculations, auto enrolment and the apprenticeship levy is also incredibly valuable to me.

Working internationally

The Production Guild welcomes international partnerships to facilitate the exchange of information and new production opportunities, as well as to share creative insights across cultures and marketplaces.

Our Business Partners

The Production Guild works very closely with our Business Partners. They offer vital support to The Production Guild and its members through funding and sponsorship of our key services and events, as well as the ongoing sharing of knowledge and experience to ensure the UK stays at the centre of film and TV drama production.

Production Guild's Industry Partners

The Production Guild has over 100 affiliate companies who supply specialised services to the production industry. All of these companies have been approved by the Production Guild Board.

I find the Production Guild to be an invaluable resource in all stages of production, providing clarity on all manner of issues such as the latest info on HMRC advice, ranging from meal and petrol allowances to whether someone should be paid schedule D or not. I also find their members' database and availability service incredibly helpful when crewing up a new production.
