Film making is 85% pre-production. (Ex: selecting a location, casting, budget, wardrobe, props, to having the right extras on set. Having the right script, cast, locations based on weather, props, negotiated contracts, & permits if you need them, can take months).

A typical “day in the life” of a producer could be days to months to put all of these pieces together with just the pre-planning before the talent hears the word “Action”. You have to keep in mind there may be last minute decisions such as weather delays which can affect drastically affect location changes to budget fluctuations at a moment’s notice.

There is so much planning and micromanaging to maintain the integrity of a project. Once you’re on set, you want to capture the raw emotions of your talent in their most authentic self. Since I am also a musician, I am very tapped into emotions. Filming is the easy part. After filming, post-production is editing what you have filmed. Lastly, it’s finding distribution. After those things are secured, then you market and promote your film.


The pro is seeing your project come to life.


And, the con is if the product doesn’t come out the way that you envisioned it. Which could fall on the following: lack of planning, lack of budget, not being able to spend the right about of time, what if the vision doesn’t come out the right way, or could you live with an adverse outcome? Another con could be, would you scrap the project for being a bust? Self-doubt can also come into play if it doesn’t reflect your creative storyboard. Experience and planning are critical, sometimes when all else fails your project may be salvageable with great audio, editing, or casting.
