Storyline

This documentary, shown on the American Movie Classics (AMC) cable channel, answers the question "What does a movie producer do?" It takes the viewer through every step of movie production. The process begins with finding suitable material to make into a film, and continues with pitching the idea to a studio, developing the script, finding the right talent (in front of and behind the camera), shooting the film, marketing the film, and finally, releasing the film at a gala premiere. The complete process can take several years. Written by David Glagovsky <dglagovsky@prodigy.net>

Tells It Like It Is.
21 February 2002 | by eye3See all my reviews

A superb behind-closed-doors documentary of the Hollywood producer. We get the stories straight from the horses' mouths.

(Insert wisecrack here.)

This should be mandatory viewing for all movie-making classes. I can hardly wait until this is released on video.
