On today’s show, we welcome the producer couple Tracy Jarvis & Steve Jarvis. Their credits include the BAFTA-nominated Anna & the Apocalypse (2017), A Christmas Gift from Bob (2020), The Kindred (2021), Followers (2021) & A Midsummer Night’s Dream (2022).
With our host Giles Alderson, they not only chatted about why they decided to become filmmakers when they both had “normal” jobs, but also about what it was like to produce their first feature film and the difficulties of that. They also discuss their filmmaking journey, what it’s like to work on different budgets, the different ways they put the money together, and the importance of taking care of your crew.
They also talk about Followers, which Giles helped produce: How it came about, what it was like on set, what they would have done differently in hindsight, and distribution. Tracy also talks about her agency, and they briefly talk about what’s it like to work as a couple.
This was a just very entertaining and insightful conversation. We really dive deep into the work as a producer. So please enjoy this week’s masterclass on producing with Tracy Jarvis & Steve Jarvis.
