How do you become a producer or director?
More and more often I see female producers and directors....and they keep getting younger and younger. How is it that someone gets a job like this? Where do they start? What experience do they have? I know internships, college, who you know....etc... all help. But I am more interested in who you actually give your resume to. Who exactly do you need to know? What do you need to do before applying to be a producer or director....or even casting director?

anyone who knows anyone can help you out. however, it helps to know what you're talking about if you do know someone who knows someone and you actually get a meeting....

First you have to have a few million to put up if your going to Produce then you can hire a Director unless your the Penny Marshall type that has the money and loves to Direct

I think you have to do your degree at college first. Get involved in a lot of productions until you gain some experience. On the other hand, you could get someone famous to adopt you. There's so much nepatism in the industry it stinks.
