The Production Guild of Great Britain appoints two new board members
Two new appointments have been made to the Production Guild of Great Britain as the board welcomes Alex Boden and Natalie Moore. The announcement has been made alongside a new pledge from the Production Guild to reach out to production hubs outside of London.
As an independent producer and founder of Pistachio Pictures, Alex Boden has worked on a number high-profile projects including Netflix’s Sense8, Cloud Atlas and The Holding.
Warner Bros. Finance Executive Natalie Moore has assumed the role of Production Accountant on both blockbuster and independent features such as Dunkirk, Locke and The Last King of Scotland.
Guy Barker, Chair of The Production Guild and Financial Controller explains: “we’re delighted that Alex and Natalie have joined the board, and warmly welcome back Iain, Stephen, Fiona, Christine and Frith. The range of expertise they possess within their differing specialisms translates into real understanding of key issues relevant to our members. Each has their own valuable contribution to make as we go forwards, to help guide, support and strengthen the world-class film and TV production community we have here in the UK.”
With regards to the new pledge, Site Director of The Bottle Yard Studios, Fiona Francombe details: “historically I think there's been an impression that industry support is London-centric and predominantly focused on supporting film production. Coming from a regional background in television production myself, I know that different parts of the country face varying opportunities and obstacles. I’m keen to hear the views of members working outside London to get a sense of common challenges faced in local areas. That way we can build a picture from the perspective of those working on the ground and hear ideas about how PG can most effectively serve members in the regions.”
With London’s increasing population and popularity as a desired filming destination, more productions are looking outside the capital for their next location. Bristol, Yorkshire and Kent have all benefited from this trend, offering skilled crew at a lower cost.
