Doc U: Producing for Docs
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. So how do you establish that trust within your team? How can you make sure everyone has the same goals in mind? How do you maintain an encouraging attitude in the face of complications? IDA Board Member Stephen Nemeth of Rhino Films leads a panel of veteran non-fiction producers will discuss what to expect when producing a doc and how a successful producer gets the entire production team to deliver their best. Panelists include Lesley Chilcott (Waiting for Superman), James Moll (Foo Fighters), Elise Pearlstein (Food, Inc.) and Jeffrey Tuchman (The Man From Hope).
