The secret’s out: Producers are the ones who make it all happen. Pre-production and proper planning are essential to a successful feature-length film. In this introductory course, lectures and seminars will use real production case studies to cover budgeting, scheduling, casting, releases, permits, soliciting investors, script breakdowns, hiring crew, coordinating post-production, festivals and distribution. These topics are the most critical issues every filmmaker should address before beginning a production.
