You want a producer credit? Do you know what it takes to get one? This course will help you understand how a producer makes a feature, tv show, corporate video, and/or documentary. We’ll talk about fundraising, pitching, budgeting, developing the treatment, shooting, assembling crews, working with post-production houses, choosing formats, legal and ethical considerations, and distribution options. Guest speakers will provide first-hand knowledge of many of these topics. Grading is based on outside work, one exam, and class participation.
