Project Planning (Short Film Project)

project plan
This short film project is set up for 15 2-hour lessons, so a total of around 30 hours of class time. Preparation and finalising take around 4 and 3 weeks respectively.

This planning is a guideline, and some flexibility is required. Classes get cancelled,
electricity supply is sometimes interrupted, teams don't always finish their work on time, and re-scheduling tasks once in a while won't do any harm. Just make sure the teams finish their tasks properly and assign them homework only if necessary.

An overview of the tasks, duration, sequence and dependencies is provided in this Short Film Project Planning made with MS Project. We do NOT use MS Project to keep track of the project progress even though that is technically possible.
