Ask an AD/Line Producer
What the heck does an AD do? How can you talk to your Line Producer about the budget? How do they make the budget and the schedule?
This class will be structured to answer YOUR questions. We have worked on countless TV shows and films, so pick our brains!
Who we are: Meta Valentic, Line Producer/UPM/AD on independent films ("Urbania", "Ladron Que Roba A Ladron"), TV shows ("Lost", "Bones", "Castle", " Marvel's Agents of SHIELD"), and studio films ("Nixon", "One Night Stand", "Avatar")
Katie Carroll, 1st and 2nd Assistant Director on studio films ("Million Dollar Baby", "Changeling", "Letters from Iwo Jima", "Cloverfield), TV shows ("Marvel's Agents of SHIELD, "Castle", "Perception"). Katie was the 1st AD on the Kimberly Levin feature film "Runoff" that shot on location in Kentucky for a very independent budget. "Runoff" had a successful festival run and is in theaters now.
Both Meta and Katie have been nominated for the DGA award for Outstanding Achievement in Film and Television, Katie won the DGA Award for "Million Dollar Baby" in 2004.
