Once a film is in preproduction, the producer is responsible for providing the best possible support system. The producer must organize all the elements, human and material, to implement the creative team’s artistic vision. A producer’s duties may include legal and accounting work; revising the script; casting actors; finding props, wardrobe, and equipment within budget; and working with the director and editor during and after the shoot. Low- budget and student filmmaking provides invaluable experience as preparation for larger productions, enabling students to learn to assess technical materials as well as the skills and talents of above- and below-the-line personnel. This course tracks the producer’s role from the selection of material to the delivery of the production. Students choose a project and spend the term developing a professional-quality proposal.
