      Johnny Fewings (NBC Universal) Careers Masterclass

      The Sharp End Johnny Fewings worked as Joint MD of Universal Pictures, was Head of Strategic Initiatives at the company, and now works with the acquisitions team at NBC Universal, with a long record of developing script and directorial talent in addition to acquiring movies for the company. A regular visitor to Falmouth University, he was central to the development of the NBC Universal Hothouse – 30 students have passed through the scheme over the last four years from BA Film and BA Television, with a HotHouse graduate being employed by the company in 2017. His talk is a wake-up call for how features are funded and exactly what an executive producer and producing team does to hustle money for a production, and recoup that money through the release. This is a great primer on how industry works at the high end. The first part of the talk covers where and how the money gets spent and deals with above the line, below the line, talent, music, fx, special shoots, tech issues and post production. The second part covers where funding comes from and deals with equity, tax breaks, EIS, deferment, gap, BFI, subsidies, the cultural test, pre sales, etc. It's peppered with trailers and examples of films with which Johnny has been involved.
