4 Steps to Producing Your Show (Before asking for money)

By: Bridin Clements

So you want to do a show…

As a young producer I frequently get calls from friends in the business.  “I’ve written a show! So what do I do now?”

Throughout both the planning process and while on site, I often find myself in conversations about who’s responsible for what. I cringe to myself when I hear people say, “well, that’s not my department.” Or “It’s on you if something happens.”  I have heard this from managers, designers and crew alike. While certain end decisions might not be yours to make, the reality is that making sure everyone goes home safe to their family […]
