LECTURER IN FILM &TV (PRODUCING/CREATIVE PRODUCING)
VCA Film and Television offers degrees in direction, screenwriting and producing. Graduates are industry leaders in cinema, television and associated fields.
The Masters Producing degree sits at the nexus of the school’s creative, technical and business education. The school environment provides its producing students with the opportunity to enhance their leadership, collaboration and communication skills within a supported yet challenging environment. Producing students support, enhance and lead teams to creatively and practically realise ambitious screen projects. However, creative producing graduates also need an advanced understanding of how to develop creative material and talent within the business and legal parameters of the shifting professional media production environment. Our producing graduates should be fully equipped to become industry game changers and innovators.
The VCA Masters Producing degree has recently been re-designed to address these broad educational goals. While training our graduates to understand the existing professional environment, we also aspire to train agile thinking outside the box. In seeking new academic staff to lead this degree, aside from significant industry and educational experience, we are particularly keen to hear from applicants who can demonstrate initiative in progressing new ways of developing and producing creative screen materials across multiple mediums and platforms. Academics who can model innovation in screen producing and in teaching will be a valuable asset to this project.
We currently have two x 2 days per week positions available, to attract different types of expertise and to facilitate continuing industry engagement for the successful applicant/s. However depending upon the applicants and their experience, we are open to making a single 4 day per week appointment.
