Pasadena Virtual | PMBOK's 10 knowledge areas are met in the management of a film/TV project


PMBOK's 10 knowledge areas are met in the management of a film/TV project

It’s widely considered that film and movies began in Paris on December 28, 1895, when the Lumière brothers exhibited ten of their short films.  Since then, a predominantly project-based methodology has built up around the production of films and television shows, which took off mainly after 1948.  Today, film and television production methodology covers a wide range of techniques based on genre, format, and budget.  Richard Tucci has served in a producing capacity on films and television shows that have been produced/distributed by Lionsgate, IFC, the Jim Henson Company, Lifetime TV, Bravo TV, History Channel, the Food Network, BET Jazz, and Netflix.  He has also worked at Paramount Pictures, managing union editors and various technical post workflows, and served as an assistant to Penny Marshal.  This on-set and studio post-production experience has given him a large knowledge base, allowing him to distill the project management details of a film/TV project into this presentation.  He’ll cover how the PMBOK's 10 knowledge areas are met in the management of a film/TV project, and also discuss paperwork and forms used for communication, and other facets.



Richard Tucci is an accomplished storyteller and technology project manager; an alumnus of both Chapman University and the University of Southern California, he began producing documentaries, commercials, and music videos before he graduated.  One documentary project he produced in 2005, WALK IN THE LIGHT, received critical acclaim and was chosen as an official selection at over a dozen film festivals, and was distributed on BET Jazz as a half-hour special in 2007. After graduating, Tucci began his career working under Penny Marshall, where he worked on developing THE JOE FRAZIER STORY, as well as several other projects. Following his time there, Tucci worked as a freelance producer, working on several independent feature films, including the Anjelica Huston film THE KREUTZER SONATA, and the horror feature VIRUS X, distributed by Lionsgate. Tucci has also worked on the producing staff for many reality TV shows.  His first breakthrough was on the show HOW TO LOOK GOOD NAKED where he served as Associate Producer on the hit Lifetime Television show. In 2009, he was able to transfer to Paramount Pictures, where he managed post-mastering workflows on Paramount Titles and Acquisitions, and supervised revenue for the department, as they rose from $12 million a year in revenue to $19 million a year. After leaving Paramount, he attained his PMP and CSM certifications. He has been the founding partner in two tech startups, where he managed content and product, and is an active member of the Producers Guild of America.
