7 Factors That Make A Director/Producer Collaboration Work

By Ted Hope

 How do you know someone is someone you are going to work with for the long term?

How do you know each other is capable of being supportive of what the other has to be doing?

What are things needed to make this unique relationship work?

The latest installment of my Film Courage interview attempts to answer precisely that:

  1. To some degree it is a question of chemistry and personality like in any other relationship. Do you think you will want to have dinner with each other regularly over the next few years? You must.
  2. The relationship will never stand on it’s own. It is also the question of the project.  What are the big ideas in the project and will you find them intriguing several years down the road? Do the elements within contain enough to keep all your synapses firing for the long haul?
  3. Someone must bring inspiration regularly. Do you or they have a bit of that mad genius in them? Even better yet, are you capable of doing that for each other?
  4. Someone must bring strong leadership all the time. Is that you? Will one of you help the other deliver this?
  5. There must be careful diplomacy that can surface and fulfill needs. Both sides ideally are the parent here and neither is the child, but if that is not so, will the other be able to fully pick up the slack?
  6. Together, you must deliver the pleasure and joy that makes both the project and the relationship distinct.
  7. Both sides must have the capability of appreciating all that goes into to making a movie.

Before you say yes to this creative marriage, ask yourself if all of this is there for you, them, and your project.

    I wish to express some appreciation to the writer for bailing me out of such a incident. Because of surfing around throughout the search engines and getting suggestions which were not beneficial, I was thinking my entire life was well over. Being alive devoid of the strategies to the issues you’ve solved by means of this site is a crucial case, and ones which could have in a negative way damaged my career if I hadn’t come across the blog. Your primary natural talent and kindness in dealing with every aspect was tremendous. I’m not sure what I would have done if I had not discovered such a solution like this. I’m able to now look forward to my future. Thank you very much for this expert and result oriented help. I will not think twice to suggest your web sites to any person who needs to have support about this area.
