This course will explore the management skills needed for the four areas of production management: pre-production, production, post-production and distribution stages of a media production. Students will engage with and apply industry standards to the most efficient and economical way to organise their productions, while focusing on the `Macro' of media business management and the `micro' of making day-to-day production decisions to ensure that projects proceed smoothly. All aspects of pre-production will be examined including identifying and generating story idea, proposal development, project pitching, production budget, scheduling, legal, insurance, the break-down of scripts into shot lists and storyboards and time management. Through case studies, students will journey through the production process, the post-production phase and finally the distribution of the production. Students will complete a series of authentic assessment tasks based on industry practice in film making that reflect industry aligned skills and current knowledge.
