ConfidentialLos Angeles, CA
Line Producer - Film (Theatrical)
The Line Producer will consult on and supervise the budget, along with managing day-to-day preproduction for the creation of reenactments to be used within a feature length documentary. The reenactments will feature incredible true stories of heroes being called to act after a natural disaster. The perfect candidate will have good industry contacts within California and experience producing projects (fiction or non-fiction reenactments) that creatively use art department, miniatures, special effects, and/or visual effects etc. to create epic visuals as frugally as possible.
The job is to collaborate with the director and eventually the department heads, overseeing all pre-production operations: hiring the production team, sourcing suppliers and monitoring/juggling financial resources, scheduling, location scouting, health and safety procedure, negotiating prices etc. You will be the point person for all day-to-day responsibilities leading up to the shoot.
The project is funded, the interviews are shot and the script is green-lit. We are open to doing further fundraising if it's deemed necessary by the line producer after s/he reviews the project materials and the budget. Shooting is scheduled for early 2017. It will not be required that you work on set during shooting.
