The Atlanta Film Society Presents The Indie Producer Series - The Producing Track

Interested in understanding the job of a Producer? Looking to raise funds for a project or manage yours effectively and efficiently? Producing, production managing, or working as a 1st AD on an indie short, feature, or series?

These two series of workshops will cover the basics - what does a producer do, crew positions, definitions, responsibilities, and hierarchy, what is development, what it entails, and why it’s the most important part of the process, how to breakdown, schedule, and budget your movie, what should be included in a business proposal and why. We’ll discuss the basics from concept to completion to give you a leg up on your next project. If you don’t have a current project to workshop in the Budgeting Track, one will be provided.
