Being a Television or Movie Producer is for anyone who has a penchant for micromanagement, is willing to find and secure funding, and has an eye for scripts that will work great on camera. The Producer has to be everything on the set. They need to review the scripts that are offered to them, find the money to fund everything, and then make sure that their staff get the job done as brilliantly as possible. There is no master’s degree in video production, but there are relevant fields that can help. Getting a bachelor’s in writing, management, the arts, acting, or similar areas can be a great way to prepare yourself.
