Quality 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 Quality Management
A project can come in on time and within budget, but if the quality is not up to the standard set, then the project is a failure. Plan quality management is part of the overall project management plan, though it can be a standalone document if it contains the quality specs for the product or service.
The process needs to include quality assurance, which is just a way to make sure that quality standards are being met. Therefore, to control quality, the deliverables must be inspected to make sure that those standards outlined in the quality management plan are being met.
