Passion 2 Create!
NOTE: THERE ARE NUMEROUS WAYS TO GET FUNDING FOR YOUR PROJECTS: STUDIO FUNDS, INDEPENDENT SOURCES, YOUR OWN FUNDS, ETC. THERE’S NO ONE SET WAY. THIS MUST BE SECURED AND IN PLACE PRIOR TO PRODUCTION. TYPICALLY, AS A PRODUCER, YOU THINK ON MONEY AND CONTRACTS...AS WELL AS THE 'BUSINESS' ASPECT OF THIS BUSINESS. THOUGH THERE ARE CREATIVE PRODUCERS OVER THE TALENT IN VARIOUS WAYS, TO MAKE MATTERS SIMPLER HERE, WE WILL FOCUS ON THE FOLLOWING DUTIES FOR NOW.
PRODUCER: Working with and finalizing Contracts with insurances to cover the cast, the crew, the locations and studios and everything in between is your forte!
PRODUCER: Then, there are some producers who provide, have, find, gather or oversee the monies for the production...payroll, etc.
PRODUCER: Some have a legal background or are very experienced in all of the needed contracts for insurances of all the needed sorts. They also “Know people” and can get things moving faster and smoother in the process.
PRODUCER: Some draw up the contracts for the talent and the production crew and negotiate the deals, terms, costs, etc. in those specific areas. The total type of producers, if listed here, will roll like a long credits list at the end of a movie. I will spare your eyes for now.
