About 12 days ago now I sat down with Georgia Goggin, a producer first and foremost but also a director. She produced the short film We Love Moses which premiered at the BFI London Film Festival in 2016, won numerous awards and screened at festivals worldwide including Toronto. She’s currently producing her first feature, written and directed by her regular collaborator Dionne Edwards, who as I speak is at the Sundance Institute Writers Lab with the project, so I feel very lucky to have been able to meet Georgia at what is undoubtedly the dawn of an abundant career. What struck me most about Georgia is how incredibly hard she works. This is someone who is clearly firing on all cylinders. We talk about motivation, collaboration, mentorship, sexual harassment on set, how to get a meeting, wearing the directing hat as opposed to the producing one and a new funding opportunity for filmmakers that she’s collaborating on called The Uncertain Kingdom. It was a joy to be in the room with Georgia so I hope you get as much from it as I did.
