Episode notes

This episode, our featured guest is the award winning producer Catryn Ramasut. Co-founder of Cardiff based company ie ie Productions, Catryn’s first film, Separado, picked up CPH:Dox’s Sound and Vision Award in 2010, whilst her second film, American Interior went on to win the Best Music Documentary Award in 2015 at Barcelona’s In-Edit Festival.

In 2017, her third feature Queerama premiered at the Sheffield Docfest and told the story of an extraordinary century of gay experiences, whilst her forth feature, Rockfield: The Studio on the Farm picked up a Grierson Nomination for Best Music Documentary.

Catryn and I discuss her approach to producing films, the challenges she’s navigated during her feature doc career, and the necessary qualities you need to cultivate to become a successful documentary film producer.
