J219 Associate Producer

This is a four week course: January 22, January 29, February 5, February 12.

The Associate Producer is a crucial job in any documentary and long-form video production. The AP is called upon to fulfill a wide range of duties: reporting, logistical planning, budget management, archival acquisition, organizing deliverables, and managing personalities—and each one has to be executed with precision for the project to be successful. Each week, students will screen clips and discuss all the variables filmmakers had to consider in order to help bring the scenes or projects to fruition. Students will be given assignments based on that week’s lecture and discussion — reporting on aspects of the story, developing profiles of central characters, planning and organizing an out of town shoot for your crew, and others.
