DEFINITION OF A PRODUCER
Transtar Entertainment Company is a Producer of entertainment products. The role of a Producer is to bring together and manage four key elements: 1) The Creative Package... the script, director, actors and other creative elements that make the production viable; 2) The Financing... securing investments to fund production; 3) The Production Package... hiring the crew, selecting locations and securing the equipment necessary to produce the project; and 4) Distribution... moving the finished product into U.S. and international markets to begin the flow of revenue. Thorough knowledge of each of these four elements is critical to being a successful Producer.
Transtar Entertainment Company is positioned in the marketplace as an independent production company. An independent has been described as a company that finds its production financing outside of the traditional studio system. Its product may be distributed by a studio, but the company obtains the production budget from other sources.

Step Seven is to interview and select other key crew members, such as the production manager, director of photography, art director and editor. Step Eight is to develop the preliminary production schedule, scout sets and locations, and arrange for all support services.
