About this course
roducing is a craft that brings together the many disparate facets of filmmaking, covering both creative and business-focused skillsets. Simply put, no other position in film or television has more to do with the technical, creative, and financial aspects of making a film or TV show than the producer does, and it is he or she who sees a project from the very beginning to the very end.
Over the course of two semesters, students learn what it means to think and act like a producer. From day one, students are treated as producers and are challenged to develop the creative and technical skills producers must have to successfully navigate the entertainment industry. Through a combination of lectures, seminars, and coursework, students will become familiar with the different roles, tasks, and obstacles that producers encounter and learn how to manage them.
