Meet The Producers: Why We

Watch This Session

Script.  Pink shirt? White shirt? T shirt? Script. Jeans? Combats? Shorts? Script. Serious? Witty? Enigmatic? Script. Brad? Quentin? Johnny? Script.

Who knows why a producer will warm to you and what it is about your story that floats their boat.  What do they know that you don’t?  And why are you still agonising over the third line on page 32 when maybe that’s not their interest?

In this session we meet Gareth Unwin, producer of The King’s Speech and Lisa Bryer, co-producer of The Last King of Scotland who will offer their Top Tips in getting that golden handshake from them.  Is it because I’m blonde?
