The producer is the pivotal figure in a film production, maintaining a business perspective on the many facets of film. As a producer, you create the opportunities to facilitate documentaries, feature films or TV productions. You play a key role in commercial and organisational aspects of production, but are also closely involved in the substance of the film.
Your passion for film is clearly evident. Are you great under pressure? Do you like to get things done? Do you keep going no matter the odds? Then this specialisation at the Film Academy may be ideal for you. You may have ambitions about making your mark in selecting the screenplays to be filmed. Or perhaps you’d rather focus on the practical organisation of film-making. As a production student, you are expected to be distinctive and social, communicative and critical, and above all enterprising.
Cultural entrepreneur who inspires and motivates others
A producer is a cultural entrepreneur who is responsible for operational management. As a producer, you have the last say on financial matters, but also about content and design. You are part of a core trinity, along with the director and the screenwriter. Commissioning screenplay development, generating (and guarding) resources to create productions, be a leader to the creators, draw up plans and schedules: all this is part of your responsibilities as a producer.
