Hands-on Intensive 2-Day Weekend Producing Workshop

2-Day Weekend Producing Workshop Master Class Overview

A producer is one of the most crucial creators in the entertainment industry. No single position has more to do with the creative, technical, and financial aspects of making a film or TV show than the producer. Producers hire and fire, work with film studios and TV networks, develop the material, hire the writers, find the buyers and financiers, oversee script development, casting, hiring of the crew, locations, distribution, film festivals, and so much more. Ultimately, the producer is the most involved with a project through every phase from pre-production to production and post-production.

In this two-day weekend master class, producing students develop their own project concept. An intensive overview of the fundamentals of producing includes an exploration of the creative producing process and a strong introduction to the intricacies and requirements of producing professionally in the U.S. industry. The workshop is taught by working industry professionals and offers students an opportunity to learn new skills through hands-on learning.
