SO YOU NEED TO FIND A PRODUCER?

What are you looking for exactly?  What experience / skills are required from the person you are entrusting to get your project up.

Where does the producer's role begin and end?  In feature film?  In television? In web series?  In short film?  How do you find yourself an ideal working partner?

It's a long term relationship starting with development (where the producer's market intelligence and/or experience will come to the fore). The right someone for the long haul.

A team of experienced producers, Robin Laing, Virginia Wright and Nadia Maxwell, will lead a panel discussion on how to find the best collaborator for your project.

Nadia Maxwell has worked on numerous documentaries for TVNZ, TV3 and Al Jazeera, she has also produced Here be Monsters and most recently Human Traces.

Virginia Wright's screen credits range from primetime arts and docu-drama programming on TVNZ and TV3 to blue chip documentaries on networks such as Discovery Channel, National Geographic and Fox Television's NHNZ. Virginia is a producer at Paua Productions.

Robin Laing has a longtime interest in telling Kiwi stories, her screen credits include but aren't limited to: haunted car tale Mr Wrong pool movie Stickmen, comedy Ruby and Rata (1990) Perfect Strangers (2003). Laing was also part of the producing team on War Stories, Send a Gorilla (1988) and Niki Caro's adaptation of The Vintner's Luck (2009), shot in France, Belgium and New Zealand.
