This course will explore the management skills needed for the four areas of production management, including: pre-production, production, post production and distribution stages of a media production. All aspects of pre-production will be examined including identifying and generating story idea, proposal development, project pitching, production budget, schedule, legals, insurance and time management. Equally students will journey through the production process, enter into the editing and post production phase and finally the distribution of the production. Students are working with a 'real' client where they pitch their collective idea to meet the client need and proceed to a finished product. This enables a student to work in a team setting, to explore roles and tasks, to engage with a client and understand the processes that need to be undertaken to secure a production and deliver it on time and on budget.
