Tip #880: Insights on Being a Producer
Making films is a business. The Producer is CEO.
This article, written by Jourdan Aldredge, first appeared in PremiumBeat.com. This links to five video interviews with industry producers on what it takes to step your career up to the next level.
- Mark Heidelberger
- Toby Halbrooks
- Christina Sibul
- Bonnie Curtis
- John Paul Rice
I really like John Paul Rice‘s comment: “Start from the end. Start from the very end and work your way back. Don’t start here and go forward without knowing where you’re going to end up… It’s a clear objective of where you should be at this stage. It should be a logical conclusion because everything should flow forward as it flows backwards, as well. You won’t miss anything that way.”
Jourdan’s article summarizes the interviews, then links to them so you can watch them yourself.
