In spring 2010, we conducted an online survey addressing the 70 film professionals involved in the first three editions of Production Value (2007 – 2008 – 2009).
It involved 32 Juniors from 18 countries, 12 Seniors from 6 countries as well as 16 Producers and 10 Directors from 8 countries. 83% of them replied to the survey — 58 responses representing 20 European countries.
Our purpose was to evaluate the impact of Production Value on the following points below.

The professional practice, career and understanding of European conditions by the Juniors
95% of the Juniors admitted that attending Production Value changed their professional practice, either “partially” or “definitely”.
95% of them are still using the skills acquired during the workshop.
Production Value has “definitely” or “partially” changed the career opportunities for 70 % of the Juniors.
More than 90% have broadened their understanding of the different working conditions in Europe (with 80% in a definitive way)

The state of Projects brought to the first three editions
Out of the 16 projects taken up during the first three editions of Production Value, only one (SENNENTUNTSCHI by Michael Steiner CH/DE/AUS) has been completed so far.
70% of the projects are still in development, out of which 20% are still in creative development.
Feasibility of the Projects is not a criteria for their selection. On the contrary, we favor complex films to be made and to be financed because they are good case studies for our Juniors and Seniors.

The professional approach of the Producers & Directors of these Projects towards scheduling & budgeting
Two out of three Producers admit that Production Value has changed their professional approach towards scheduling & budgeting, with a one out of four qualifying this with “definitely”.
Directors gave the same priority as their Producers to scheduling and budgeting projects earlier in the development process.

Post-workshop networking between Juniors, Seniors, Producers & Directors
One Junior out of two tells us that he/she is regularly in touch with other Juniors, and one out of three that he/she is still in touch with some of the Seniors. No Junior has worked with another one since the Workshop, but five of them have worked with a Senior who hired them for a production.
Two out of three Seniors are regularly in touch with their Juniors. More than 25% of the Seniors have stayed in touch with the Producers and Directors of their assigned Projects and 20% have even worked with/for them.

To the question "Is Production Value an initiative you would recommend to your colleagues as a worthwhile workshop to which to submit a project ?”, 80% of the Directors and 100% of the Producers answered positively.
