This course will cover the set up and management of the production of a 2D animation, encompassing a full production pipeline. It will cover the skills, knowledge and tools necessary to be an effective production manager, which participants can then apply to their commercial studio work or their own productions. The weekly classes will provide an opportunity to meet and engage with industry professionals and gain a broad understanding of the challenges experienced in managing animation productions. The five weekly modules will run as follows:
01 – The Production Pipeline – overview and design
02 – Managing the Schedule and Coordinating Departments
03 – Tracking and Managing Production Assets
04 – Recruiting and Managing the Crew
05 – Tackling Production Challenges and Delivering
This course is suitable for people who want to work in general studio animation production management; for those who want a fuller understanding of how animation production management works in terms of their own role within a studio animation production or for those working on their own independent productions.
