|Subject Overview:|| |
The aim of this subject is to introduce students through a practical placement in a public sector work environment to the range of ideas and skills involved in taking up professional work in such a body. The placement will be in a moving image museum such as the Australian Centre for the Moving Image, a gallery, conservation organisation, film festival body, commercial film exhibition body or government department or media body. The placement will enable students to apply information, ideas and skills developed in the core Master of Cinema Management units. Students will be allocated both an academic and host organisation supervisor under whose direction they will work on a relevant practical project in keeping with the host body's requirements and the student's interests and experience. Projects undertaken can range over a variety of tasks, such as assisting with setting up a festival or exhibition, writing a report, conducting market research, conducting a stock take, researching a collection for exhibition, writing a festival program, or dealing with the media or general public.
