The Producers Guild of America (PGA) has named more than 20 prominent producers who will participate in the Mentoring Roundtable sessions at the second annual Produced By Conference, set for June 4-6 at 20th Century Fox Studios in Los Angeles.
The mentors confirmed to date include Bonnie Arnold (How To Train Your Dragon), Bruce Cohen (American Beauty), Lee Daniels (Precious), Dean Devlin (Independence Day), Mark Gordon (Saving Private Ryan), Sarah Green (Tree of Life), Mark Johnson (The Chronicles of Narnia), Charles Roven (The Dark Knight), Cathy Schulman (Crash), Paula Wagner (Mission: Impossible) and Richard D Zanuck (Jaws).
The conference is an educational forum with over 30 sessions designed to provide all producers with career tools and insights necessary in today’s competitive marketplace. Last year’s sold out event attracted more than 1,200 people.
The PGA is also launching the Producers Wiki, a collaborative online project designed to serve as an interactive knowledge base about producing. The Producers WIKI ‘Live’- Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Producing But Didn’t Know Who To Ask will be a live session involving producers and executives. Using the PGA web site members can access production advice, information, job references and more.
