I know this has probably been asked 10,000 times, but how does one become a producer? I have shot my own short film before. I have written a number of short films. One even made the quarterfinals of the Bluecat Screenplay Contest. I think I have skill sets that I could use to produce films. In my day job I manage design and construction projects worth millions so I know how to work with people and put together teams. Just don't know the best way to translate those skills to producing or know if there is a way. Thanks for any advice. I know there are not shortcuts, but I need to know at least where to start.
