About the creator
Introduce yourself to your potential producer, explaining your background, your credentials and your experience. You may want to reference other films you have conceived in the past, especially if they made it to the final stages to show that you have the capacity to put a viable project together – something that would be very important for a potential producer considering a film proposal. Beyond those mechanical details, give your introduction a bit of flavor. People invest their money in people and in ideas. You can endear yourself to your reader quite a bit by talking about your personal life beyond your work.
