Producing for Documentary Film

A four part webinar series on creative producing, impact and engagement, executive producing, and archival producing!

Whether you are looking for a producer, want to be a producer, or are confused by what kind of producer does what and/or what you need for your project and your team, this series is for you! 

In our constantly changing industry, the title ‘producer’ gets muddled with many descriptions, what does the work entail, but how specifically do we break this down into what a producer is, does, and is credited? It’s not a catch-all by any means. And if you want to be a producer, how does one make it a sustainable career?

These four webinars are skill-building workshops for creative producing, producing for impact and engagement, executive producing, and archival producing. With experts in each field, we will break down, examine and define what each bucket of producing entails and how to make it work successfully.
