A producer must be organized, invested in the project, be able to work around time and budget constraints, be able to solve problems and show perseverance, determination and passion. You are the motor of the film, and we want to see this come through in your application. Please write one side of an A4 sheet (max) to tell me why you should be the Producer for this documentary, and send it to me by 7 PM on Friday 22nd October.
Once all applications have been received, I will select a few people for an interview, which will be organised with you after selection.
All bids are to be emailed to email@example.com before the deadline. Please also CC your applications to firstname.lastname@example.org
Shooting will take place sometime in November or December, so please make sure your availability is flexible in those months before you submit an application!
What are the qualities that make a good producer? Please give examples of situations in the past where you have demonstrated these qualities.
Do you have previous experience in making films? If so, please tell us a bit more about your experience (does not necessarily have to be producing).
More into research? Our Researcher will locate sources, research leads and develops content for the story that the documentary will showcase. They can also manage a team for helping to research the chosen project.
If there’s a subject that you’re particularly passionate about or already have some content you’ve been toying with this is the perfect opportunity.
Send a one-page treatment, detailing your proposed project alongside your personal skills and experience that will make you suited to researching it, to email@example.com by 7PM Friday 22nd October. Please also CC your applications to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will then invite a few researchers for a discussion of their idea, and after that will pick the treatment which I think has the most potential. I will judge the treatments mainly on the idea and its originality, but also on their feasibility for a low-budget, student production.
For any further questions, email email@example.com or post them in this thread.
I look forward to reading your applications!
PLEASE NOTE: You need to be a Production Member of the society to apply and get involved.
