Certificate in Production Management (TV & Non-fiction)

This Production Management course presents the opportunity to gain and develop practical production skills in film, television and live action and to keep pace with the ever-changing technology and practices.

Building on existing experience and skills you have learned through working or studying in a creative environment, this course will provide you with a comprehensive overview of the practical management and process for creative production.

  • transition from one media form to another and to learn about the different pipelines that are appropriate for specific media.
  • gain and develop practical production skills specifically for industries where technologies and practices are changing all of the time.
  • incorporate your skills into real projects and productions.
