Producing I: Film and Television Development
Summer 2020 - Producer Alex Creswick is the kind of professor you always hope to have as an instructor. Creswick is highly engaging, enthusiastic and accessible; her stories drawn from in-depth experience and knowledge of the real life of being a producer are priceless. Students in this class learn about not only what a producer does but also all the other roles in the sphere like agent, writer, casting director, manager, actor and entertainment lawyer from lively guests currently in those roles. Students are to ask these professionals questions and network with them. The assignments in UCLA Film and TV 183A class are designed to build the skills needed for first jobs as well as create a portfolio for first interviews. I highly recommend this class and professor. It is practical and worthwhile. This is the best professional development in Film and TV! Thank you!
Winter 2022 - This class is a good intro to the industry and the assignments were relatively straightforward. The T.A.'s give good feedback and the professor brings in industry professionals to talk to us every class time. Lecture is really long since we only met once a week but it was enlightening nonetheless. He's a really chill lecturer and he presents facts with humor sprinkled in. Be careful with the group assignments though, people here can be lazy as hell. I had to carry my group several times.
