Course Description

This course primarily is about managing the advertising production process from an Advertising Agency account management viewpoint. Whilst the pre-requisite subject, Creative and Production Techniques in Advertising, concentrated on the steps involved in making print and electronic advertisements, this course puts the student in the place of an account service person with an agency, to successfully manage the production process on behalf of the client to meet the campaign deadlines specified by the media schedule.

If you are undertaking this course in Melbourne from semester 2, 2012 onward your class will be held in a device-equipped teaching space. Each student group will have access to a laptop. It is however recommended that you have access to a mobile computing device to allow greater flexibility in terms of where you can work on campus both in and outside class times.

Learning Outcomes

Overview of Assessment

Students will split into three groups and stay in that group for the whole semester.
Each group will be given a completed Creative Brief on an intended campaign. The various mediums to be utilized in the campaign will be nominated. The brief will be the catalyst for all three assignments covering ‘client job bags’ and ‘conference reports’; a ‘production plan’; and ‘client invoicing’. Each student in the group will nominate and identify his/her piece of work, but will also need to have active involvement in the other portions of work to ensure a strong overall result for each assignment.
