There are many different problems related to movie production management. There are those who are committed to a certain aspect of the production, such as sound or camera. Other people who are dedicated to the technical side of a film are known as line managers or production assistants. Each one reports to the producers or directors. All of these people have a unique set of skills and experience. Despite this, they still find it difficult to work together to make a movie that everyone can enjoy.
Film making is an industry with a great deal of competition and is highly dependent on external and internal factors. With all the different aspects, a movie production company may face major problems at some point in their history. By integrating flexible knowledge management practices, investing in new technology, and attracting the right audience, a movie company may be able to survive the current crisis. These problems may not be as obvious as the last one, but they still remain significant.
One of the most comprehensive books on movie production management is Cleve (2006). This book provides a detailed account of movie production management problems, from how to choose the right team to determine the best budget and which director is best suited for the job. It also provides an invaluable list of examples of the most common issues. The author argues that the most important problem is the failure to manage the talent in the right way. In the end, there is no “right way” to run a movie production, and no definite answer to the question of what is “right” is.
