For independent film producer Allison Carter, (AMERICAN HONEY, THE DINNER, MADELINE’S MADELINE) there are three areas of expertise that the producer needs: development/pitching, field producing, and a deep understanding of how the industry works. Join us as Allison guides us on how to cultivate the skills in these areas and find success as a fiction film producer. We’ll discuss how to approach the development process, prepare a compelling pitch, source financing, navigate contracts, and we’ll explore the day-to-day role of the producer in the field. Our conversation will touch on the creative, strategic, financial, and logistical aspects of producing to help you skillfully tackle your next project.
