This week we talk with freelance producer Winnie Wong about making the leap from a full time producer at a major company to going back to the world of freelance. We also talk about finding your identity as a producer, crew rates and how you know when to finally make a big change in your life!
Winnie Wong has been working in the bay area in film production for almost a decade but she has spent the past three years as a full time producer at Pandora. Having just made the transition back to life as a freelancer, we thought it would be fun to have her talk through how the process is going.
