The Film Producer

The duties of the Film Producer often fall under one of two titles: the Creative/Developing Producer, and the Line Producer.

Creative/Developing Producer: Develops the material or idea for a movie.

Line Producer: Gets the movie made. The line producer manages all the production tasks through pre-production, production, and post-production.

During Tom Kane’s Film and Video Production Workshop, you will gain in-depth knowledge of the job duties and roles of a line producer. In only 3 intensive days, this course will teach you what you need to know to become a successful feature film producer, a shrewd unit production manager, and a disciplined assistant director.

Tom Kane’s Film Production Workshop was recorded on location in Denver, CO during a live workshop and is now available as a Film Workshop DVD Series or to download as Video Chapters.

The entire Film Production Workshop Download Package includes: 10 Chapter Downloads of the 3-Day Film Workshop, recorded live, plus the Workshop Manual, and both Prizzi’s Honor and Crossfire Trail screenplays. The videos are enhanced with visual references to The Workshop Manual.

Through this course Tom will discuss factors related to International Filming as well, with examples from his own work as Producer of Crossfire Trail (filmed in Canada) and Brush with Fate (filmed in The Netherlands).
