Producers Survey

Thank you for being part of our Producers' Advice Survey!

As we approach the date for our May 26th SHOOT Directors/Producers Forum & 14th Annual New Directors Showcase Event at the DGA in NYC, we thought that asking a variety of production industry leaders - production company heads, ad agency heads of production and entertainment production executives - to share some tips, words of encouragement or advice that might be helpful to emerging directors and producers as they embark on their careers would make for an interesting and fun article that would be enjoyed by our entire audience - and especially appreciated by up-and-coming directors and producers.  

We'd love to hear your thoughts on what you might say if a director and/or producer who is just starting out came to you for advice ....topics might include: 

  • getting production company representation or an agent
  • how freelance directors can get an ad agency's attention
  • how to obtain financing for a film project
  • what to put and not put on a reel
  • how to figure out which film festivals to enter
  • how to balance career and personal life
  • or, anything else that you've learned along the way that you think might be helpful to others. 

Deadline: May 10th
We must have your contact information, 300dpi headshot and responses by Tuesday, May 10th
