PRODUCTION AND PROJECT MANAGEMENT - 2023/4
Module code: PROM003
This module is designed to introduce students to the practice and process of production management in the entertainment industry, underpinned by relevant theory of management.
During this module students will develop their understanding of sustainability throughout production activities and processes. This will include working practices that promote wellbeing, inclusivity and economic sustainability as well as responsible consumption of resources across all production departments. Our aim is responsible consumption, including recycling and re-purposing, considering existing resources and promoting a circular economy and social sustainability and wellbeing within our production process at GSA. Students will also consider how these principles might transfer into the organisations and institutions of the professional creative industries.
