Job Satisfaction

August 06, 2000

Hats off to Mick Jagger and his Jagged Films producing partner, Victoria Pearman ("Not Unlike a Rolling Stone," by David Gritten, July 30). It sounds like Jagger possesses all the qualities of the old-fashioned creative producer. As the daughter of filmmaker Stanley Kramer, I think it's nice that a hands-on producer is not a dying breed.

What surprises me is that the majority of people assume that for a rock star of his status, producing movies "might be a fleeting distraction." Jagger has literally "produced" the Rolling Stones for 30 years and has always been creatively involved, whether it be in the studio or on tour. He not only manages the budget, but the song order, sets, lighting design, choreography, marketing, merchandising; was an innovator in the way auditoriums were used for concerts; and basically invented the basis for the stage rock performance as we know it.

Who better to take on the serious aspects of filmmaking than this artist of extraordinary vision?
