FilmCraft: Producing by Geoffrey Macnab and Sharon Swart, is now available from The Focal Press. It showcases in-depth interviews with some of the world’s most respected film producers such as: Tim Bevan (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Bridget Jones’s Diary),Jeremy Thomas (The Last Empreror, Sexy Beast), Lauren Shuler Donner (X-Men series, You’ve Got Mail), Jon Landau (Titanic, Avatar),Jan Chapman (The Piano, Lantana), Jon Kilik (The Hunger Games, Babel), and Peter Aalbæk Jensen (Melancholia, Breaking the Waves).
Authors Macnab and Swart examine the challenging task of being a producer. If you remember an earlier article featuring in-house producer, Tabitha Russell—who’s currently working on a new web series “Chirp”—you’ll know that the many roles a producer plays in the development, funding, creative operations and distribution of a film are no small feats.
Some producers do it all, as Benjamin Dane who is deep into post-production for the movie Beyond the Farthest Star. Other producers specialize in certain aspects of the job like Carolina Azevedo and Tara Chadwick of 55 Mile Entertainment.
The book,FilmCraft: Producing, is uniquely written, appealing to the film student and the industry veteran. Along with the interviews, “Producing” features five Legacy sections each highlighting producing legends from the past who have shaped the way movies are made today – including David O. Selznick (Gone With the Wind), Dino De Laurentiis (La Strada, The Bible) and more!
