The Master of Screen Producing provides students with industry-leading knowledge and skills to work as professional producers in the rapidly evolving screen industry. The program develops students’ theoretical and practical understanding of all aspects of the functional and technical role of the producer, focusing on the creative, practical and business aspects of being a successful producer.
In a collaborative learning environment and with mentoring from staff and industry guests, students will develop the interpersonal and intellectual skills that enable a producer to effectively lead a creative project and develop their own and others’ works. Students will establish themselves as multifaceted autonomous producers, with strong capacities in the business, creative development and leadership dimensions of the producer role, while also undertaking research into emerging and innovative directions of contemporary screen culture and storytelling.
The course offers a balance of theory, interdisciplinary practice, and departmental collaborations organised to allow for a progression from an intensively taught knowledge and skills-based first year to a more autonomous project and research-orientated second year.
Students will be given the opportunity to collaborate with students in the graduate film and television course, developing practical skills and building networks with other students.
This course includes a professional industry placement, designed to connect students with industry, which can be taken within Australia or overseas, or a research pathway for further research studies. A film festival and industry market experience that can be taken overseas or locally, granting students insight into the distribution landscape, essential to ensuring a product reaches the market.
Master of Screen Producing graduates will establish themselves as world artistic citizens and cultural agents within the international professional film, television, arts and streaming markets with the view to actively participating in the industry with a tailored and unique producing philosophy and a strong, diverse and resilient skill base.
