The best filmmaking advice on why you need a producer is here. Thanks to Josh Enobakhare at Olufemii Tutorials, our very own Jason Solari, director of The Umbrella and Out Of The Woods sat down with Josh to talk about why film producers are important.

In the video Jason talks about an experience that shifted his view on the importance of having a film producer.

If you’re thinking about doing a short film or independent feature and you’re thinking of directing and producing, you might want to think again. When it comes to knowing how to make movies, Jason knows what he’s talking about, so take his advice. Thanks again to Josh Enobakhare for the awesome interview with our fearless leader, so glad we can bring inspiration and build an awesome film community with you.
