GFA 2060 - Production Accounting & Office Management

This course is designed to give students a broad understanding of work in and surrounding the Production Accounting and Production Office departments. Students will learn the fundamentals for working within and succeeding through the Production Office or Accounting Department in the film and television industry. In this course, students will be able to identify the key players in each department and define their responsibilities. The Production Office component of this course will focus on the relationship between the Production Office and the overall production and the importance of the communication hub that exists between the Office, Set, and Post. The Accounting component of this course will focus on the accounting guidelines and reporting practices that are used to track and manage the finances of a production. Practical elements will be created through the use of actual production software and scenario simulations. This course is intended for students with little to no experience in television and film production who wish to understand the larger importance of how the Production Office and Production Accounting departments affect production with effective communication, organization, and problem-solving skills.
