Producers have a number of very clear cut, iron clad, responsibilities they have to meet in order to protect their cast, crews, investors, and families.
Taking on the title of “producer” is signing up to meet those obligations. Failure to meet those obligations results in legal and financial trouble for the project and everyone involved. Whether you are a new filmmaker or a writer/screenwriter looking to find a good film producer to sell your script to, you need to know exactly what a producer is supposed to do.
This audio recording and slide set reviews the scope of those duties and discusses ways to meet those responsibilities quickly, cost effectively, profitably. It was created to support the 17,000+ writers, producers, actors, and other creative pros in our professional networking group.

This event reviews:
• The obligations a producer takes on when they decide to produce a project and what happens when they don’t meet those obligations.
• An overview of what tasks a producer needs to complete in order to get an indie film, short, or web series developed, packaged, produced, distributed, and marketed.
• Suggestions that will help new film producers find funding, attach cast and crew, produce, distribute, and market their project.
The MP3 file included with this documentation includes a candid presentation on the scope of filmmaker legal and professional responsibilities and cost effective solutions on how to meet them by Writer/Producer Nancy Fulton, founder of the Film Funding Club. More information can be found in her slide set.
She is joined by featured Guest Speaker Stephen Gregory Curtis, a seasoned executive producer/line producer discussing the role a line producer plays in ensuring your project is fundable and funded, and/or that a screenwriter's script is easy to sell is because its feasible/cost effective to produce.
