On Day 3 we had 2 speakers – casting with Marissa Richmond and Distribution with Caroline Habib. We were asked to submit character descriptions. Kept vague on purpose, and if I had kept to my instinct, we might have had a bigger roster to glean from, but we were given some suggestions in casting. But as with all the sessions before, I realized that my gut instinct meant a lot more than just what each presenter brought to the table. And what I’m realizing is that a producer’s gut feeling means so much and each guest only feeds to that gut so that we-as producers-keep going to the finish line. The film is the thing and producers must keep driving that process and steering that ship to stay on course.
