Below-the-Line Impact Report 2012

TRACEY SEAWARD
British-born Seaward co-produced Steven Spielberg’s period drama “War Horse,” overseeing a complicated, multi-country shoot and helping to land the pic a slew of nominations. She’s been associated with some of the top U.K.-based films of the past decade, including “The Queen,” for which she won a BAFTA award and was nominated for an Oscar, “Dirty Pretty Things” and “The Constant Gardener.” Recently, Seaward shifted her producing talents from features to one of the world’s most-watched events, the Opening Ceremonies of the 2012 Olympics in London.

PATRICIA WHITCHER
Whitcher has been making sure everything runs smoothly in the Marvel universe, having created the production plan for last year’s “Thor” and this year’s smash “The Avengers.” She says the creative part of her job is finding potential bumps in the road and being ready to adapt to them without sacrificing any of the movie’s creative needs. “Sometimes you’ve got yourself into a corner that you have to get out of and not compromise the movie you’re making,” she says. Whitcher is now handling the most recent take on the classic “Godzilla,” a project just revealed with a trailer at Comic-Con, to be helmed by Gareth Edwards. She’s also hoping to jump back on the Marvel bandwagon for the inevitable “Avengers” sequel.
