Practical Production Management with Andrea Lundy

Production Design and Technical Arts program

This class was recorded in October 2020. You can watch it here

This is an advanced class in Production Management which uses detail from the 3rd-year productions to guide and help the students organize their work for the process as a whole. We examine all parameters of each production and discuss impact points as they relate to schedule, design details, budgets and general production outcomes. In addition, we explore the job of the production manager within arts organizations across the country.
