PGGB members and partners are all the best at what they do - making world class content. The UK is a filming destination of choice and is seeing a huge boom in production, we work behind the scenes to support our members and the wider industry to ensure this continues.
For our members, we run our production database which lists feature films and HETV drama currently filming in the UK, along with which of our members are working on each project. We also run an availability service, so whether you’re looking for work or looking to crew up your next production we can help you find the best talent in the industry. In addition, we offer regular networking and events for our members to meet and make connections with other departments and across the industry.
PGGB offers the best-in-class training to support our members in stepping up and progressing their careers. We also work with our partner companies including Netflix, BBC, ITV and the BFC to offer bespoke training courses introducing new talent to the industry and ensuring those who already work within the industry are supported with all the latest expertise and developments.
We consult and advise daily on production issues within the UK and internationally. As part of this, our Chief Executive Lyndsay Duthie sits on the following committees: BAFTA Learning and New Talent Committee, Creative Skillset High End TV Skills Council, Creative Skillset Film Skills Council, Production Accounting Forum, British Film Commission National Advisory Board, Film Broadcast Health and Safety Group. She also works with PACT on industrial relations issues; UK Border Agency in the film and TV industry codes pf practice for certificates of sponsorship and The Producers Guild of America on UK/US opportunities through our memorandum of understanding. Representing PGGB, Lyndsay has responded to breaking industry news on both Sky, ITV and GB news.
PGGB has led the way on a number of panel sessions including those at Focus, The Media Production Show, The Royal Television Society, Creative Coalition Festival and European Women’s Audio Visual network. Other highlights in 2022 include The Cannes Film Festival and recognition of our work around diversity at the Makers and Shakers Awards. Our very own The Production Guild of Great Britain Awards give us the opportunity to celebrate excellence within our membership and champion UK film and TV drama production management.
