Producing for TV and Video:
A Real-World Approach
Producing for TV and Video provides a comprehensive 'real-world' look at the role of the producer in television and non-broadcast video. In every project, a TV producer is at its core, using an impressive array of creative, technical, financial, and interpersonal skills. Kellison explores the roles and functions of a producer and helps the reader to understand and master the challenges of producing a project. This book expands the reader's knowledge of the television industry itself and reveals how the producer's role can be multi-dimensional, influential, and often lucrative. In addition to ten chapters that trace a project from a simple idea to a finished piece of broadcast quality, Producing for TV and Video also contains candid interviews with established industry professionals who produce prime-time programming, unscripted reality, comedy, drama, news, children's shows, music videos, as well as non-broadcast promotional and corporate videos. Producing for TV and Video: A Real-World Approach is the first book of its kind, designed for the student in an academic environment, as well as for people interested in this rapidly growing profession.
