Stories from Produced By Conference 2016

Posted By Administration, Monday, June 6, 2016

As you might expect coming out of the producing community's largest educational and networking event, Produced By Conference, there was no shortage of stories and news breaks.  From Paul Feig's set stories and Elizabeth Banks' directing opportunities, to the Russo brothers' producing perspective and so much more, see just a sample of the tremendous press fallout below.

Also, stay tuned for additional media.  Shortly, we'll be posting photos from the event here at ProducersGuild.org as well as on our facebook page.  Video highlights will also be rolled out on our YouTube channel, so be sure to subscribe.  Check out some of our social media from the event now by going to:
