Developing in-depth knowledge of all aspects of creative and physical production, Producing Fellows graduate with an ability to think creatively and lead with confidence and authority.

First year Fellows produce three narrative projects in collaboration with Fellows from other disciplines. They participate with their teams in both creative and production meetings, during which their individual projects are discussed and developed. Producing Fellows also attend weekly workshops and seminars where they learn about the producer's role and responsibilities in the filmmaking process.

In the second year, producers team with Fellows in other disciplines to create a short narrative thesis production. Additionally, they are required to develop a feature film or television project as an integral component of their individual thesis portfolio. Producing Fellows also engage in a series of workshops and seminars on all aspects of creative entrepreneurial producing.
