We hold regular courses such as Health & Safety, budgeting and scheduling, new technology and First Aid. When a fee is charged, a subsidised rate is generally applicable for members.

Co-ordinators, Accountants, DITs and Data Wrangler Lists

You will have access to lists of co-ordinators, accountants, DITs and data wranglers recommended by other PMA members.

Jobs

Employment opportunities are regularly circulated to the membership and posted on our Website.

The Forum

This is the Members only forum – accessed from all over the world. Whether you are looking for an underwater camera operator in Dubai, references for a particular studio or even a plumber in Ealing it could be of help to you.

With over 250 members working in Broadcast TV, Commercials, Feature Films, Corporate Videos and Multimedia and collectively over 4817 years of experience, there is often a solution to be found. Previous discussions are archived and searchable.

Networking

At our regular events the members can share work experiences and provide professional support for each other. Quarterly parties hosted by our Sponsors also give members a chance to keep abreast of industry developments in a very informal setting.

Bi-monthly Magazine

Full of PMA news and views, our magazine, The Bottom Line is sent to members and sponsors, keeping them in touch with the industry.

Pension Scheme

PMA members can take advantage of preferential terms for Stakeholder and Personal Pensions, negotiated for us with two leading pension providers by our Independent Financial Advisors.

Membership Standards

Because only Production Managers from the upper echelons of the industry can be members of the PMA, a high standard of professionalism is always maintained.

Our Sponsors

The PMA is sponsored by a variety of companies in the film and television industry. We have a long-standing relationship with many of them dating back to the PMA’s inception in 1991.

PMA members benefit from the information and services that our sponsors can provide, while sponsors gain access to the upper echelon of Production Managers in the UK who are major purchasers for the industry.

Become a sponsor

We only have one sponsor per area of business but occasionally opportunities to become a sponsor of the PMA do arise.

Sponsors get the chance to meet our members several times a year, host parties, explain their services and write for our magazine The Bottom Line.
