WIP October 2022 Soiree
This month's topic is: Supplemental Skills Producers have to be "Janes of all trades" - business, accounting, marketing, psychology, and more. In this month's soiree, let's discuss the additional skills that have aided in our career and share resources that have helped in the journey.
Time & Location
Oct 04, 2022, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM EDT
About the Event
Producers must know how to run a business, manage a team, handle interpersonal conflicts on set, and make sure the books are balanced. Many of us have honed our skills through working as Assistant Directors, or Line Producers. Some came up as department heads. Several are writers and know how to create worlds and character arcs on a deadline. Many of us are directors who communicate artistic visions to many audiences in front of and behind the camera. Outside of that, we are personal coaches, event planners, and more.
What skillsets have you developed outside of what are considered 'traditional production skills' that have aided your career? What tools have you incorporated into your role as producer that otherwise would seem outside your field of responsibility?
In this discussion, let's share what additional skills you have developed or applied along your professional journey, and share resources so that others may benefit from the lessons learned.
