MDC683P Production Management Practicu
Lead Faculty: Mr. Edward Alyn Warren III, MFA

Practical assignments developed by the instructor will receive individual and group critiques.

- Collaborate on the production and post-production of a short motion picture.
- Produce a production schedule, staffing and logistical requirements for a scripted short digital motion picture.
- Utilize the appropriate preproduction documents to coordinate the production and postproduction of a short motion picture.
- Critique production dailies and a variety of editorial cuts in relation to the application of cinematic concepts and technical principles of the cinematic crafts— cinematography, directing, sound design and editing—and their effective contribution to the story.
- Evaluate the organizational contributions of the director, associate producer, director of photography, assistant director, production designer, and gaffer on the preproduction and production phases of filmmaking
