NALIP believes that a Producer is the creative originator of films, a self-starter who recognizes ideas that have artistic or commercial merit. Producers must have passion, sensitivity for story and audience, plus the organizational ability and practical smarts to put together a project, then guide it to and through the marketplace. NALIP’s Latino Producers Academy™ provides our Fellows with the practical skills and knowledge to accomplish their personal goals and realize their artistic dreams as filmmakers.
The 2010 LPA invites applications from Documentary Producers in two categories:
• Documentary producers/directors with projects in development or production who have proposals and sample tapes; they are invited with their producer/director partners .
