Given the rapid development of mainland China, the greater China region, and Hong Kong film, television and new–media industries, and also given the ever-increasing demand for co-productions and co-arrangements between Hong Kong, the greater China region, and the English-speaking world, there is a high and escalating demand for educated and well-trained professionals, with a high level of language competency in English and Chinese, able to manage areas such as co-production agreements, contracting, marketing, distribution, exhibition, finance, production, advertising and public relations, in the fields of film, television and new media. The programme proposed here is a high-level professional and educational programme which aims to educate students for career opportunities as producers and executives within the film, television, and new-media industries and to provide an academic framework for such education. The curriculum embodies four fundamental underlying principles:
1.Graduates from this course must have a wide-ranging understanding of all three fields of film television and new media.
2.Graduates from this course must have outstanding leadership skills.
3.Graduates from this course must have exceptional team-working skills.
4.Graduates from this course must have a well-developed understanding of all aspects of management within the three fields.
In addition to these four principles, this programme will employ a multifaceted pedagogic manner and method of teaching, as this will correspond better to the varied, and habitually applied, nature of the subject-field. Consequently, the programme will not put its pedagogy into practice through a unitary manner and method, but, rather, through a variety of lectures, workshops, invited talks, demonstrations, colloquii, seminars and tutorials. This degree of managed heterogeneity is a mark of the programme’s disposition, aims, and spirit.
