Aspiring young film producers, programme makers and students of film or video production will find this an essential source of information, as indeed will anybody wishing to improve their knowledge and skills in the field. One is guided from the script or proposal, right through the various stages of production management to include:

· delivery

Now in its third edition, Production Management for Film and Video has been further revised to include:

· the effect this kind of programme making has on schedules and budgets.

Different kinds of management for different productions are also covered - from features through to documentaries - and advice is offered on how to run a production more effectively. Examples, taken from actual productions, demonstrate the kind of documentation needed to develop, run and control a production. Emphasis is placed on the basic principles of good management that apply to all the different kinds of film that can be produced.

Richard Gates is a freelance producer/production manager and has been involved in over 40 productions of different kinds. He also lectures extensively on production and production management techniques.
