Producers assemble the raw talent, resources, and equipment for the director to build his vision on the set.  But the business of filmmaking is like no other – the demands are constantly changing and each scene requires its own unique approach to be successful, requiring skill and agility from everyone involved.   In FilmSkills: Producing, you will learn every aspect of the business of film from the studio development process, to running the production, through marketing and distribution.
