A producer creates the framework for the chaos of art to become a business
David Streit is a film producer, film consultant and documentarian with over 35 years in the business. In addition to working on such films as Jurassic Park 3, Species, Paris Texas, Rivers Edge, Deep Cover, and Internal Affairs, he was a Senior Lecturer and Film Mentor at the American Film Institute for over a decade. His films have been to Cannes, Sundance, TIFF and The Independent Spirit Awards and have earned millions of dollars in box office.
David grew up partly overseas and cultural differences have always fed his curiosity. So it's not unusual he started as a line producer on the cult classic, Rockers, filmed entirely on location in Jamaica, which, when released, was honored at the Cannes Film Festival. David's passion for film has not wavered since, and he is still mining culture for opportunities in storytelling.
Since beginning in documentary, his experience in film ranges from producer, controlling creative rights, to line producer, to 2nd Unit Director and AD. He continues to make and to teach documentary filmmaking as a director-cameraman.
As a consultant David Streit brings a vast knowledge of budgeting, scheduling, cast/crew hiring, and post-production to every client. It's his goal is to help you and your team deliver the absolute best film possible!
Currently, based in Los Angeles, he continues to produce, teach and consult with filmmakers.
The Documentary Workshop
Another workshop with award-winning producer David Streit
Tell your story. Let me help you.
I will show you how to tell your own film stories, in a workshop rooted in documentary storytelling.
In this Zoom workshop you will learn visual storytelling by:
- Plotting coverage of a scene.
- Choosing lenses to best tell your story.
- Knowing when and why to move the camera.
- Choosing what's important and what's not.
- Discerning what seemingly insignificant things are essential.
A case study film will be screened.
Bottom line, you will leave the workshop with new clarity of what your film story is and a new set of tools to tell your story better.
"David's workshop proved to be a great experience in seeing a script through the producer's eyes. I managed to gain confidence in my ability to produce and found myself quite eager to take what I learned in the program and apply it." - J.T.
