I’ve always been intrigued by the Artist Rep/Creative Producer role. I know that’s a bit outside of what you’re asking but I’d personally love to work with visual artists, typographers etc more regularly

depends on the company, type of production and the EP. some are more production focused, some are more sales focused, some more development focused.

I think if you don’t want to line produce you only have the choice of EP for a production co in advertising.

Post house producing has line producing skills involved but it’s a bit different in that in some ways it’s more similar to agency producing, i my opinion. You work with the creative artists and often translate between client and artists while managing schedule and budgets. The pace and day to day varies based on the company and type of work.

Outside of advertising there are field producer, and production supervisor roles that may be less line producing and more about overseeing the shoot and story.

Depends on if you are sticking to advertising and commercial production houses or if you are opening yourself up to entertainment production companies. Although for the latter, I think you’ll have a hard time transitioning in horizontally unless you are willing to start out line producing or production managing.

You could be a bidding producer in house, who hands the job over to a line producer to handle once it’s awarded.

Follow up question from an agency producer. What's your advice on transitioning to Bidding Producer from Agency Producer? I have a solid understanding of bids and rates but I haven't assembled one myself. Do I need to freelance PM first?

Hi Everyone- I’m going solo soon after four years of being GC. Our company was sold to private equity so there wasn’t really much of a place for a GC anymore. I figured I would fulfill my lifelong dream of opening my own practice. ANYHOW- I have business and employment set up as my primary fields, but I’m curious what fields are fun, that would really lend themselves to solo work, or just be interesting to practice in. Thanks!
