MohammadMoein Maghami is a multi-program developer in the field of audio and video and is also developing independently mostly with the topics of technology, cyberspace, family, medicine and charity. Our conversation with MohammadMoein Maghami, a young media producer, is presented below:
What exactly does the television producer do and why did you choose this area?
The producer is actually responsible for the program. If there is a problem, it’s about the content and the technical issues is related to producer. For this reason, the producer must have an overall understanding of all the issues affecting the work. They must have sufficient knowledge of sound recording, lighting, imaging, graphics, editing, writing, directing and performing. His work looks like a sports coach who must recognize all the posts and capabilities and can make the best co-ordination between his or her players to get the result. I also choose the media, and I am currently engaged in this activity.
What programs do you produce?
I will make several models for the customers. Currently, my main order is Al-Alam. The “Sabah Jadid” program, which is the morning program of this network, is one of the programs that I have been producing. I also suggested a “Hashtag” program to explore the social medias on this network and tried to bring together a good team to prepare this program. Technology news is one of my favorites, which I am sending on the antenna weekly in this area. Of course, several other programs and affiliate programs have been produced by me and my colleagues. One more thing I did in programming was conversations and interviews with some internal and external guys that appeared in the form of several programs. Of course, the field of documentation is a great attraction for me and I’ve done some work on this. For some people and institutions, I also do the work of producing media content. I am also interested in producing short films which be submitted in festivals.
What is the most important challenge for young producers in the field of TV programming?
Perhaps the most important challenge now is to use new ways to prepare programs. Certainly, the writing of programs needs to evolve and should be removed from stereotypes. Using social networks is much more urgent than ever. Interacting with the audience should be taken seriously. If audiences feel that the result of their presence in social medias is seen in television programs, they certainly will be added to the followers of television programs and will be attractive to them. On the other hand, today’s new technologies are very important in producing the program. Using special graphics and new techniques can be very eye-catching. Naturally, young producers are expected to lead in these areas. Of course, there may be some resistance in this direction, and it’s not easy for somebody to accept these issues, but I personally am interested and I try to follow this path despite some problems.
What is the difference between producing to International audiences?
The most important difference is in the audience’s requirements. We place ourselves as non-Iranian audiences and try to get their comments. This theme is very good in prioritizing content. Of course, when the Audience spectrum is wide, we need to be more careful in choosing the field of our influence.
Do you prefer TV producing or a journalism?
Both are attractive and effective, but they are structurally different. The journalism is somewhat person-centered. Particularly, these days, concepts such as the backpack reporter also come up. But the production is a totally group work. Of course, journalism can be effective in all aspects of media work. Because the reporter should be the author and the director, and even in some cases the photographer, and these skills are important for the producer as well.
