Gazprom-Media Holding and Moscow State University’s Higher School of Cultural Policy and Administration in Humanities resume “Film and Television Production” education course

The Higher School of Cultural Policy and Administration in Humanities will launch a cycle of lectures and workshops starting on April 28, 2021 with the aim to train and develop qualified personnel for the film and television industries.

This course of lectures and workshops is designed to train media producers: starting with the basics of playwriting to the study of specific job tasks related to blended professions. University students will master the full range of skills that a producer needs to work in various formats (feature-length films, series, television programs) and learn about factors that determine the success of television projects, such as creating a universal idea, putting together a project team and promoting content.

The course will look at the organisation of production processes and problem solving of financial and management issues. It will also teach students to make independent evaluations of a project’s creative and commercial potential, and also to develop and carry out their own projects.

The topic of this year’s first lecture will be “Discussion about film”, led by the creative producer of GPM KIT, Georgy Ryumin. The GPM KIT Group of Companies (Film. Internet. Television. Production, rental, distribution) is part of Gazprom-Media Holding.

Among the course teachers there are also the leaders of the Holding’s various assets: producers, editors, directors, screenwriters and marketers of the TV channels Match TV, NTV, 2x2, Friday!, TV-3, TNT4, as well as the companies KIT Film Studio, Red Media, GPM Radio and others. The educational program not only offers theoretical knowledge, but also practical experience on real projects, master classes and pitching exercises. All of the faculty’s students can take part in the course.

In the context of global competition, it is very important to produce high-quality content quickly and reach the right target audience. The key factor here is the availability of highly professional personnel who have strong creative and management potential. In this way, it is necessary not only to make smart investments in the formation of a new generation of experts, but also to identify and support young and talented students who want to grow in the film and television industry.
Alexander Zharov CEO of the Gazprom-Media Holding

The educational course first launched in September 2018 and is carried out with the support of the GPM KIT Group of Companies, NTV channel (part of Gazprom-Media Holding) and other Holding companies.
