  • Objectives


    This curricular unit (CU) aims to provide students with advanced skills in managing projects and programmes in the context of television and film production. Thus, the CU deals with different distinct types of skills that are articulated around the notion of developing and implementing projects, promoting thereby a training that seeks to ensure the fitness of the student to deal with the different stages of conceptualization and production because it passes through an audiovisual and cinematographic product throughout its value chain. The skills covered by the course are: project management; conceptual development of projects, and models of organization of production of projects for long and short film.
