1 The producer’s role: ‘make our days’
In the first part of this week, you’re going to take a look at who does what on a film production. To get started, let’s meet some of the most influential people involved in the making of a film.
Ollie Madden has appeared a few times now – he is the producer of Spooks: The Greater Good. He describes his role in the production process from scheduling through to the production itself. You will also hear from Simon Bowles, the production designer, and finally, Clare MacClean, the post-production supervisor. They will describe their roles in the making of the film.
Next, you'll take a brief look at how people get paid in the film business, before moving on to other roles involved in the production process.
