Cook Tuesdays and Thursdays,, 9:00am til 12:50pm Room: Comm 145 Contacting the Professor Office Hrs: By appointment Office: Comm 177 Phone 407-823-2758 E-Mail: [email protected] Website: http://lisacamille.googlepages.com/home Course Description: FIL 4647 CAH-FILM 3(3,0) Film Production Management: PR: Film major, FIL 3201C. Production, budgeting, script breakdown, construction of production boards, scheduling, location scouting, and crew procurement. Through the process of breaking down, scheduling and budgeting a script, we will identify the necessary balance between the creative process and the financial process of filmmaking, and the logistics it will require to get it “in the can”. We will review from the production manager’s perspective the techniques of hiring and firing, day-to-day crew management and successful job hunting. Course Requirements: Students coming into this class should be organized, self-directed problem solvers, demonstrate an aptitude for leadership, inquisitive and attentive to detail. No prior film experience or coursework is necessary, but a strong work ethic and good study habits are imperative. Course Objectives: After completing this course the student will be able to: Break down and schedule a script Create and interpret a film budget and cost report Track spending on their films Understand crew job descriptions and how they work together on a film production Define and apply basic management skills Interpret basic film production contracts and forms Manage a successful production Required Texts: You will be required to print out assigned documents and bring them to class. I do not require that you purchase any texts for this class. Supplemental Texts: I highly recommend reading From Concept to Screen: An Overview of Film and Television Production (Paperback) by Robert Benedetti ISBN-10: 0205327435. It is the best book I have found that covers all pertinent aspects of film in a manageable length. It is expensive, about $40, which I why I don’t require it. Evaluation Procedures Grade Categories Description of the requirements Weight toward final grade QUIZZES Quizzes at 4 times during the course. They include True/False (if false you must write in True answer) and a short written question.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
