Season 2 continues to roll along with Producer Elizabeth Collins. Elizabeth’s company, CTRL E Content produces branded content and commercials for companies including UPS, Jersey Mike Subs, Nike, L.L. Bean and others.
In this conversation, we discuss the top 3 mistakes Directors are making by self producing. We also talk about when is “the right” time to consider reaching out to a producer. Is it dictated by budget? Experience?
Elizabeth also shares what she views the relationship between a Director and Producer looks like on a project.
As a director who’s self produced projects and was seeing the budgets and demand continue to grow, working with Elizabeth was a true pleasure. It helped having a professional discuss the details of budget directly with the client and keep the client demands within scope in the budget.

A quick shoutout to this episode’s sponsor, Think Tank.
Flashback to 2015, I had just quit my full time job to create content for Gary Vaynerchuk’s personal trainer. I had to travel once a week into NYC with a laptop, lenses, camera, mic and headphones. I knew my current bag wasn’t going to cut it. After doing a ton of research I settled on the Think Thank Airport Essentials bag. I can’t begin to tell you how many miles I’ve walked around NYC with that bag on my back fully loaded with my gear. It’s super reliable, fits into overhead compartments and had been my go to bag for the last 6 years now. See the multiple ways you can arrange your gear by heading over to the Think Tank website.
