Indie Producer Offers Inside Tips

JToddHarris2_Brodie_WEB-300x193From The Triangle:

The Antoinette Westphal College of Media Arts & Design, in partnership with the Greater Philadelphia Film Office, welcomed Los Angeles-based film producer J. Todd Harris to the URBN Center Annex March 2 to host his one-day film seminar, “Producing the Independent Film.”

The goal of the seminar was to give students interested in pursuing a career in film an inside look at the intricacies of producing an independent film, from planning to post-production, and what it takes to succeed in Hollywood. Harris used his career as a producer to put the film industry into perspective to the audience of budding producers, directors and screenwriters.

Harris, who produced the Golden Globe Award winning film “The Kids Are All Right” starring Annette Bening, Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo, encouraged the audience to pursue film careers but made sure to discuss the reality of the high stakes and competition in the film industry.

“Studios have a different lens that they look at projects with, and it has changed a lot in the 20-plus years I’ve been in Hollywood,” Harris said.
