Accountability for financial and creative success

Key creative roles tend to require a combination of strong entrepreneurial, creative and practical production skills, which are used to generate opportunities such as a development or production deal.

Key creative roles can range from general to specialised, with a strong vision as an essential requirement. Many of the key creative roles are learned on the job.  Although formal education can be helpful, with each subsequent production, key creatives develop their discipline and skills over the course of telling screen stories throughout their career.
