'What I Really Want to Do is Produce -': Top Producers Talk Movies & Money

Faber & Faber, 2006 - Всего страниц: 382
What does a movie producer actually do for a living? Does producing amount to anything more than writing checks and smoking cigars? Helen de Winter, herself an intrepid young producer, explores the ins and outs of a job that requires the combined skills of a wheeler-dealer, a diplomat, a stern but doting parent, and a clinical psychiatrist.
Along the way, she gets help from the producers of everything from The Lord of the Rings and Bridget Jones's Diary to The Constant Gardener and My Big Fat Greek Wedding, who give their answers to questions such as:
* How do you smell a hit?
* How do you raise sufficient sums of other peoples' money to get a film made?
* How do you handle feuds, fights, or even fatalities on set?
* And what can you do to drag the general public off the street and into cinemas to appreciate the fruits of your labor?

The results make enlightening reading, whether your interest lies in movies or money, or whether indeed what you really want to do is produce . . .
