October 2010- May 2011 Being a creative leader in audiovisual projects
The Milan University Master "Fiction and Cinema writing and production" is open to all Italian and foreign graduates, from all the faculties, having obtained either the four years or the three years degree.
The Master is taking place from October 2010 to May 2011. It is meant to prepare professional screenwriters, story editors and producers, offering a training course centred on narrative structures which are the main element of any cinematographic and television project of fiction.
On the basis of that common wide and essential core, the course is divided into two parts:
  • screenplay class: writing and screenplay development oriented;
  • production class: realization, management and planning oriented.
The profile of the writer-producer - the main role of the American industry - is still very unusual in Italy: he is the creative leader of an audiovisual project of fiction and, starting from a narrative competence developed as a screenwriter or a story editor, is able to coordinate all the creative and realizing needs useful to produce a fiction or a film. The Master is specifically meant for those who aim at working in broadcasters editorial offices (foreign products acquisition, tv program organization, etc.)
The Master degree can open to the following professional positions:

  • Story editor (collaborator or development manager) for production companies (cinema and television) or tv channels.
  • Fiction and Cinema Screen-players.
  • Acquisition Managers, evaluation and programmes scheduling of fiction products for public or thematic channels.
  • The various creative jobs dealing with story writing and narration architecture (authors of entertainment television programmes, commercials copywriters, videogames authors, novels authors and editors, comic strips authors, etc.).
  • Professionals operating in the television and cinema market (distribution, evaluation, acquisition), with a specific authority on the evaluation of contents..
  • Professionals operating in the field of cinema and fiction executive production (production assistants, director assistant, production supervisor, and specific producers).
  • Television and cinema critics, specialized journalists, cultural experts, film clubs organizers; experts in the audiovisual teaching methods.
