Digital Production Buzz – February 22, 2018
This week on The BuZZ we look at creating budgets. Budgets are essential to production, but that doesn’t mean we like to build them. Tonight, we talk with producers from TV, film and theater about how they build a better budget and how their budgets allow them to “bring their creativity to life.”
Join host Larry Jordan as he talks with Aaron Semmel, Andrew David James, Cirina Catania and James DeRuvo.
