The Producers Guild of America has added Paul Feig and Neal Moritz as speakers at its 10th annual Produced By Conference, which will be held June 9 and 10 at Paramount Pictures Studios.
Moritz will be joining Jim Gianopulos in his headlining “Conversations With…” session. Additional speakers include Stephanie Allain, Ian Bryce, Donald DeLine, Tracey Edmonds, Lucy Fisher, Lynette Howell Taylor, James F. Lopez, Chris Moore, Ronald D. Moore, Mary Parent, Stacy Rukeyser, and Doug Wick.
The Produced By Conference will bring back its Mentoring Roundtables to give attendees a chance to ask questions about their own projects in development and learn in a more personalized, intimate setting with one-on-one feedback. No pitching is allowed — the roundtables are intended simply to answer questions and provide insight into the nature of a successful producing career.
The PGA is also bringing back the Producers Mashup, which is scheduled for June 10 and features four distinct tracks — Feature Film, Scripted Television, Unscripted Television and Digital Media — seating a small group of participants at a table with a producer or executive, during which time the group will have 15 minutes to ask questions.
