We get asked about what a producer actually does all the time. Seriously, all the time. It’s not necessarily a bad thing – we’re oh-so happy to share what we do – but we’d love to let you into our world, so we invited a few producer friends to help answer the question for you.
Our ten-episode online series sees MILKE interview six other independent producers. We chat about the many facets of the role like what they do, how they work, which misconceptions they’ve faced, what advice they have for artists looking to engage with a producer, and why we need independent producers in the performing arts sector.
