This weekend I'll be attending the Producing Workshop at The Independent Film School, taught by Ela Thier.
I took it in 2001, and have produced 4 short films since then. But I still have a ton to learn as a producer, so I'm taking it again. Also, as the industry changes, and as Ela learns more about producing as a result of her own producing work, the Workshop is updated. I'm looking forward to hearing a lot of new things this time around.
Of course, some things never change. Producing well is a lot of hard work, and being guided by the vision of an excellent film is the best driver behind being a good producer.
I have at least three short films that I'm anxious to produce, and I'm writing a feature film. One fine day I'll be producing that!
