A Producer is the person who gets the project made. A creative and entrepreneurial selfstarter, the producer has the talent for turning his or her artistic vision into a tangible product — and, for a good producer, a critical and/or commercial success. The Peter Stark Producing Program will expose an aspiring producer to the full spectrum of the entertainment business and creative development. Students will learn every step of the creative process, from development through distribution. Starkies discover and hone the creative, entrepreneurial, and managerial skills needed to succeed in the career path of the student's choosing. Students will become a scholar of the industry, through classes in entertainment history, economics, and law; studio management; budgeting; marketing; and independent producing. In short, Starkies will know how to practically take a project of any media — film, television or interactive — from script to screen, large or small.
