Has anybody attended the PBS Producers Academy in Boston? I would love advice on the application process. They say they want independent producers, not just PBS affiliate staff – is it true, not just lip service? How about recommendations?
I approached OPB several years ago, seeking mentorship (both in general and for a specific grant application). Not a single person I wrote to replied! The leadership has changed, perhaps it is different now? Certainly their web site offers to rent their facilities and crew to independent producers (while emphasizing that they can’t and won’t offer any funds or resources ever to anyone).
I’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, if you have advice, please write me!
