VIDEO: Film Producers Round Table Conversation (SAG Foundation)

Happy Saturday!

Today we thought we’d bring you a round table panel interview with four producers based in Hollywood, including Judi Levine – an Australian producer who arrived in LA 18 years ago and just had her (and her husband’s) first major movie success with “The Sessions”.

Side note: As actors, we often forget that we are not the only ones who have to graft and slog and keep aiming high against all the odds. The truth is that just about everyone in this biz has to do the same thing – no matter which side of the camera they stand on.

This interview session gives you a great idea of what a producer does and how that relates to you as an actor – which is always useful information, and, as they say, knowledge is power.

The panellists are:

Chay Carter (Producer, Argo)
David Klawans (Executive Producer, Argo, Producer, Nacho Libre)
Judi Levine (Producer, The Sessions)
Sean McKittrick (Producer, Donnie Darko, Producer, Pride & Prejudice & Zombies)

Enjoy!

In the penultimate video in a series of current top movie talent round-table interviews, conducted by The Hollywood Reporter in the lead up to Oscar Night, we hear from top Hollywood Producers Peter Chernin, Eric Fellner, John Lesher (Birdman), Marc Platt, Cathleen Sutherland (Boyhood) and Emma Thomas (Interstellar) about the state of the biz, how movie Marketing budgets need to be bigger, what their views are on the movie business then and now and much more.

In the week leading up to the Oscars, sit back, grab a pen and paper and soak up a ton of fascinating info from the other side of the camera from The Roundtables: The Producers.  Enjoy.
