    Abstract

    This report describes a project undertaken to create a short video for a local Portsmouth maths initiative. The initiative leader was looking for a video to report on its success, instead of a written report. Using project management techniques the project was researched, defined, planned and implemented. The creation of the artefact utilised a range of skills and technologies from pre- to post-production. The main aim of this approach within this report is to try and establish project management tools more suited to a multimedia project. The final product and report was evaluated in three different areas. A client review and evaluation against the initial specifications found that the management of the project was a success. Although it met the requirements of the client, areas of improvement were identified. A personal evaluation against initial goals was conducted, and identifies several key skills gained through completing the project. It could be concluded that project management techniques can be successful adapted and utilised for a video production, and can aid in focusing the team to see underlying needs, constraints, issues and solutions.
