Film production involves
1. Pre- production
A producer can either work independently, developing ideas and raising money
for a film, or they can work as part of a studio, proposing projects to the
studios finance team…
Inspiration/ idea for a film:
Inspiration can be gained from eg historical events, biographies, comic
books, TV series, true stories, novels
Where did the
ideas for these
films come from?
Casting (choosing actors/ actresses
for your film)
After being inspired and thinking of an idea for your film the next thing to do is
write a treatment/ pitch for financiers. This treatment must also include
The producer needs money to make the film £££ $$$.
The producer will then pitch their idea to financiers.
Financiers will decide whether to fund the film. If they go
ahead the film has been given the GREEN LIGHT
Once money has been secured the producers next task is to
ensure the planning is complete
and camera persons
Producing your own film
Each group will be given a different ‘type’ of film (eg US/ UK/ Blockbuster/ Indie)
Working in that category you need to think of an idea for a film that will eventually be
funded by your chosen production company.
Write a treatment to pitch to the financiers.
You will pitch your idea to the class at the end of the lesson.
