The Production Guild of Great Britain (PGGB) is thrilled to confirm a second series of our ‘Meet The Producer’ podcast, hosted by Jason Solomons and sponsored by Production Service Network.
Film Critic, Presenter and new producer Jason Solomons will once again speak to six UK producers to gain unique insights into their individual careers and experiences in the field of screen producing. Episode one will feature double Academy Award-winning producer Simon Chinn (Searching for Sugar Man, Man on Wire) in conversation with Solomons, recorded live yesterday (6 December) at UK screen industry trade event FOCUS in London. Other series two guests will be announced in due course.
Lyndsay Duthie, PGGB CEO says: “We’re delighted to confirm a second series of our Meet the Producer podcast, sponsored by PSN. Series one featured an incredible line-up of some of the best talent in the business, ranging from multi-award winners with decades of credits under their belts, to breakthrough successes getting their first major deal. We can’t wait for series two, to shed even more light on how different producers start out - and keep going - in this fast-changing industry!”
Jason Solomons says: “I am thrilled to be returning with another season of Meet The Producer. As I discovered in the first shows, there are so many ways of producing and I can’t wait to find out more approaches to the art of it, learning some more ‘tricks of the trade and hearing about the multitude of experiences my guests have had bringing their stories to screen. I’m particularly excited to be meeting the producers during the buzz of awards season so I’ll be finding out how to navigate the highs and lows of that particular journey.”
Michael Moffett, Founder of Production Service Network (PSN) says: “At PSN, we're all about ground truth from the trenches of production worldwide. Our company and our curated list of production service company partners really identify with the type of knowledge-sharing that is the cornerstone of The Production Guild's Meet the Producer podcast, so we're delighted to be sponsoring season two.”
PGGB's Meet the Producers podcast sees guests discussing the role of the producer and the many different facets of the job, covering everything from what attracts them to new projects, to financing models and ‘the art of the deal’, to managing budgets and pressured schedules.
