I bumped into LP Vermette and Virginie Lavallée in Annecy this year and right away was intrigued by what they're doing. LP and Virginie are Canadian producers who have pivoted to focus on training producers in the industry. What is wonderfully refreshing is that aside from being super capable and experienced to teach other producers, they're taking the angle of wanting to turn out producers capable of balancing the well-being of their role and their team with everything a role in production entails.
Aptly named the Happy Producers, we had a wonderful conversation talking about their careers, their approach, and really their mission to have a lasting impact on the mental health of the industry. Of course, they're still hands-on producers in their own right, keeping them in touch with everything that's happening within the industry and their field.
I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.
