Class Management and Research for Audiovisual Production

  • Presentation


    The aim of this practical workshop is to enable students to adopt a strategic and creative vision when preparing and carrying out projects through collaborative work on specific cases. 
    Students begin by analyzing projects from the perspective of creative production in order to find the best way to exploit the specific potential of each project. The analysis also involves understanding the various roles in the production sector, from producer to assistant, as well as the various more practical or administrative roles in project management. In the course, students are involved in all stages of production, from pre-production, with project analysis, planning, budgeting and team formation and management, to shooting and post-production.
