Course Description

In this course you will develop the skills and knowledge required to implement systems and processes to manage media assets (vision, sound and project files) for screen productions and projects in the live production, events, audiovisual and television industries.

The course applies to individuals working in large enterprises on projects or productions that require a wide range of media assets. They work directly with the creators of audio, video and graphic assets to ensure the asset management system accommodates their needs.
