Without question, producers are the “devils of a fellow” of filmmaking. They not only have to be genius financiers and brilliant organizers but are also the most patient troubleshooters, matchmakers and very often a parent to members of their film family. To pack all this under one roof, producers must find and define the right working frameworks and therefore also become founders, business-people or in one word: entrepreneurs. This interactive session brings together strategists and experienced producers to explore models of building and maintaining a company on solid footing. Case studies illustrate how producers manage teams and talents and how they adapt their creative and business models to remain relevant in today’s international filmmaking landscapes.
