The relationship between director and producer is perhaps the most fundamental to any film project. There is a theoretical delineation between director and producer with the former handling creativity and the latter handling logistics. But, is producing merely about the technicalities? Increasingly, we are seeing the rise of Creative Producers, and even accidental Creative Producers. This talk poses a big question to the producers on our panel: do you identify as a Creative Producer? During the session, we will be exploring how a producer can contribute to the creative vision of a film.
This talk features several alumni of the SGIFF Southeast Asian Producers Network and dives deep into figuring out what director-producer relationship makes the dream work.
