The Producer's Role
Fall 2023
Taught By: Alheli Alvarado-Diaz
Section: A

CRN: 14180

Credits: 3

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, needed 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, teaching students how to assess technical materials and 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.
