The Writer/Producer Relationship

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Producers are the backbone of production. They're one of the first people to join a project and the last to leave. Managing logistics, finances, crew, and keeping the production running smoothly, on time and on budget. Suffice it to say, film and TV wouldn't exist without competent producers. Hear first-hand from our producing panelists on what their typical day is like, what they look for in writers, and what a general relationship looks like with other creatives.

Must have an AFF Producers or Conference Badge for entry.
