Procurement Management, How to Project Manage a Hollywood Film!
It’s widely considered that film and movies began in Paris on December 28, 1895, when the Lumière brothers exhibited ten of their short films. Since then, a predominantly project-based methodology has built up around the production of films and television shows, which took off mainly after 1948. Today, film and television production methodology covers a wide range of techniques based on genre, format, and budget. This lecture (presented in 10 parts) will distill the project management details of a film/TV project into this presentation. We’ll cover how the PMBOK’s 10 knowledge areas are met in the management of a film/TV project, and also discuss paperwork and forms used for communication, and other facets.
Project Procurement Management
This deals with outside procurement, which is part of most projects, such as hiring subcontractors. This will obviously have an impact on the budget and schedule. Planning procurement management starts by identifying the outside needs of the project and how those contractors will be involved.
Now conduct those procurements by hiring the contractors, which includes a statement of work, terms of reference, request for proposals, and choosing a vendor. You’ll want to control the procurement process by managing and monitoring, and then closing the contracts once the work has been done to everyone’s satisfaction.
