Whether it’s a feature film, television series, web series, stage play, or video game, no creative project is started and guided through to completion without someone making the hard choices. That person is the producer.
Seattle Film Institute’s Master of Arts (MA) in Producing for Film, provides students the ability to pursue a career as a film, television and digital content producer. The skills developed during the program prepares students for a wide-range of career paths as well as providing the ability to generate their own projects and see them through to completion.
- Acquiring and developing properties
- Assembling and working with a creative team
- Legal Issues
- Writing a business plan
- Marketing and distribution
- Pitching projects effectively
In the producing program, students develop skills as they directly apply them to building a comprehensive presentation portfolio for a specific project. The portfolio revolves both around a creative and business blueprint designed to convey the scale, scope, tone, and tenor of the actual project to potential investors and collaborators. The program culminates with a formal presentation of the portfolio projects to an invited audience of potential investors and film industry professionals.
At the program’s completion, students have the tools and hands-on experience to produce films. As well as a skill-set that is directly applicable to other career paths encompassing new and emerging media. Perhaps more importantly, graduates have the skills, abilities, and confidence to pursue their own creative goals and produce their own successful careers.
