The life of a DRTV producer is stressful indeed. Deadlines. Airdates… Sometimes you just have to take a step back and laugh and appreciate the hard working folks who labor with you day in and day out to get it all done. It truly takes a team to make everything needed happen.
However, if you find yourself entering into a project with a DRTV producer that isn’t bringing their “A” game, you may want to consider moving forward in an alternative manner. Everyone has their good days and bad days, but sometimes you may run into someone that you just don’t mesh with. Such is life.
If you find yourself an infomercial producer that you can work with day in, day out that can still keep it together, not only with regard to your production goals, but as well that is a pleasure to be around… you may have struck gold. If you’re finding yourself in a bind searching for this unicorn, here are a few things to consider that might help you in your exploration.
While a resume and portfolio can speak wonders, until you take some time and have a conversation with potential producers, you don’t quite know what your getting yourself into. Could be good… could be really bad. If you have the opportunity set up a call, consider setting up a Skype video call instead. You may get to know someone much better through visual communication. You may also catch a glimpse of what you might expect when in a working relationship. Whatever the vibe, don’t be afraid to ask the important questions, whatever those may be for you.
