In the Making – Maggie Miles

Maggie Miles – Graduate Diploma of Film and TV (Producing)

Producing is about being really organised whilst at the same time allowing room for creativity and experimentation. I just find it really fascinating. It’s not painting by numbers.

I believe that every Producer/Director relationship is different. It’s a question of facilitating the Director’s needs and coming up with ideas to realise what it is they’re looking for.

With film, I think it’s really exciting to be able to take something that doesn’t change every night and transport it to an audience. You hope and imagine that they leave the screening and hold on to something, you imagine they go away with an insight that has been enabled through that process.

Filmmaking in four words… tenacity, ideas, talent and opportunity.
