Advisor Studio sessions feature intimate, moderated conversations with Sundance Advisors who are working artists and media industry professionals that contribute their expertise to the Collab community via courses, classes, office hours and events. In the Studio events, Advisors share field experiences and insights into their specific areas of craft, including writing, directing and producing for TV and film.

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.
