  • Doc U: Producing for Docs in San Francisco

    From original concept, fundraising, and production to festivals, distribution, PR and outreach, one can't argue that the documentary producer’s job description is varied. At every level from executive down to assistant, a good producer knows how to anticipate the needs of a director and crew--all usually on a tight schedule and an even tighter budget. Whether you’re bringing your own concept to life or jumping in mid-stream to save a doc in trouble, a good producer must bring a vast array of talent and expertise to the project.
