In this unit students gain an understanding of the role of the creative producer as they take a project through development from initial idea to targeting markets and trans media opportunities. The unit's emphasis is on developing a project whilst navigating the complex connections between government incentives, business and markets.
On completion of this unit students will have formed into Creative Producer teams. The teams will develop pre-production material, and the 'paperwork' that surrounds a film's market proposal, ready to begin production of their graduating film in the following unit. They will also be able to answer this question, "How many Producers does it take to change a light bulb?"

Learning Outcomes

After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Identify and align a project with a market;

2. Evaluate investment and return as it applies to both commercial films and short films;

3. Use technical understanding to produce an investment budget and a production for a short film; and

4. Lead a creative team and foster collaboration in the development of a short film.
