There are surely more qualified television floor managers / associate directors who could lead this seminar. However, there are very few of them who have an understanding of the role of a theatrical stage manager. It is Aidan’s combined understanding of live television production and theatre production that he hopes will make this seminar a compelling and unique 3 hours.
