Short profile: Executive & Line Producing

Course context

With the EXECUTIVE & LINE PRODUCING specialisation, you gain far-reaching insights into the production work of line producers, business executives and executive producers working in Germany and internationally, who function as points of intersection between the creative, business, organisational and legal aspects of a film production.

The focus of the teaching content in this specialisation – through which lateral entry into the Production project-based studies course takes place – lies on the financial, business and organisational management of a film and media production.


Overview of the curriculum

The curriculum is implemented with leading figures from the national and international production landscape as lecturers. The production and evaluation processes in film-making are becoming increasingly international. In view of this, you will focus mainly on example cases with international high-end formats that point towards new approaches in content, financing and evaluation. Selected excursions also provide insights into current production processes.

As a student in the EXECUTIVE & LINE PRODUCING specialisation, you take part in a mentoring programme with prominent figures from the media industry who provide you with advice and support for the duration of your studies.


Specific features
