B3 Shortcuts with the fearless film & television producer Effie T Brown

B3 were delighted to invite the wonderful all round superhero Effie T Brown down to a packed out Ritzy Cinema in Brixton in June to share some insights into getting and sustaining work, THAT episode of Project Greenlight, and more! Effie provided a refreshingly honest account of getting into the industry, her influences and mentors, and her ever-expanding production crew. She gave us the low down on getting acknowledgement from the Industry, playing fair and providing opportunities to the next wave of creatives.

“These were the movies that really affected me, but I never saw myself reflected [in them]. It was out of that reaction that made me want to go into film and television.”
