Tonight on The Double Down Film Show we will delve deep into the art, craft and hustle that is producing.
What exactly does a producer do? How do they do it? And more importantly, how can you do it better?
Veteran indie producer and NYU Film School adjunct producing professor, Christina DeHaven will help us break down "the real" tonight- only on Double Down!
Since graduating from Tisch School of the Arts in 1999, Christina's career has led to a number of producing credits that include commercials, music videos, episodic television, documentary, and over a dozen short films. Her first two shorts were accepted to the Sundance Film Festival, in 2001 with "3D" directed by Pete Chatmon, and in 2003 with "Cutman" directed by Yon Motskin, which was also a First Place Wasserman Finalist. She also worked on the break-thru Filipino indie feature film, "The Debut".
Christina's recent projects include two feature-length documentaries, "My Uncle Berns" (directed by Lindsay Crystal, HBO), and "761st" (directed by Pete Chatmon), about the first African-American tank battalion to enter combat in WWII. Christina has also recently produced several music videos for the Grammy Award-winning band The Black Eyed Peas.
Christina serves as an adjunct faculty member at NYU Tisch School of the Arts teaching Producing the Short Screenplay, as well as serving as an administrator for the Department of Film & TV.
