The first two editions of Asiadoc have shown the lack of producers dedicated to creative documentary in Southeast Asia. Several filmmakers have had to create their own company to produce their films. But producing film definitely is a full-time job.
It actually is several jobs at once!
The artistic development of the project with the author, the management of the budget and the cash-flow crucial stake, the commercial and contractual competences of negotiating with broadcasters and distributors…
So many skills a producer has to develop definitely deserve a special training!
12 to 15 Southeast Asian film producers developing a creative documentary project will be hosted in an intensive four weeks training aiming at developing several skills:
- to accompany the artistic development of the project with the author
- to design a production strategy and prepare the dossier to apply to the funds
- to deal with broadcasters, festivals and distributors
- to convince potential partners to get involved in the production
- to deal with a budget and its cash- flow
- to promote the film
The course is designed for any film producer from Southeast Asia with the nationality of and residing in the ASEAN countries: Cambodia, Myanmar, Malaysia, Thailand, Laos, Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines, Brunei, Vietnam.
Qualification (diploma) is not an obligation but experience in film production is required. The participants should have a basic knowledge of what producing a documentary is and have some field experience in production. They must have a creative documentary project in development.
3 producers will be accepted without project as observers.
Good communication skills in English are required (oral and written).
