Producing for Media
In today¿s cross-platform multi-media environment, producing requires a broad expertise encompassing an eclectic web of disciplines. This course provides a hands-on overview with a special focus on the producer's leadership within the creative process. It is based on a fundamental assumption that collaboration not only works, but also is the essential tool of the producer for idea development, project execution, and in amassing the specific knowledge upon which the success of any project depends. We explore producing as a process rather than a specific set of skills relevant to a particular medium or production technology. Instead, the course's curriculum tracks the step-by-step development of any large collaborative project whatever the final mode of delivery. Each week, through a combination of lectures, discussions, case studies, and exercises, we will explore another aspect of the world of the producer.
