About the event

Learn and understand the roles and responsibilities of a Producer, particularly on smaller/low-budget projects.

In this workshop, you will:

  • Review the basic role of a Producer from pre-production, through production, and into post/distribution/marketing/film festivals.
  • Focus on smaller/low-budget projects, where the producer often wears many, many hats, and discuss how to juggle those responsibilities.
  • Discuss Producer vs. Director roles and when they overlap and complement each other.
  • Learn about the various ways producers can make a living and the different kinds of projects that need producers (from photo shoots to feature films)
  • Q&A about production/producing/film-making.
