Life as an Indie: Paul Barnett
21 May 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
We are delighted that we will be joined by one of Britain’s most experienced Television Producer & Directors, Gosh! TV’s Creative Director Paul Barnett.
Paul began his early career working in 3D Animation, establishing one of the UK’s first CGI production companies in the early 1990s, 3D Films.
After starting his Television career in 2002, Paul has gone on to direct and produce over 40 Flagship Series for the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5, Sky and the Discovery Channel, including Come Dine With Me, Escape to The Country, Supersize vs Superskinny and two BAFTA Award Winning Series – Embarrassing Bodies for Channel 4 and Coast for the BBC.
Paul has overseen productions both large and small, from directing ambitious dramatic reconstructions with dozens of extras to filming sensitive observational documentaries single handed. He’s also directed and produced on-screen talent on all levels and from all walks of life, working with both first-time presenters and household names including Robson Green, Maureen Lipman, Larry Lamb, Shobna Gulati, Jon Culshaw, Jonathon Ross, Brian Blessed, Paul Merton, Sir Richard Branson and Richard Wilson.
More recently, Paul has established his own independent production company, Gosh TV, which has produced several ambitious projects for the BBC and ITV, one of which recently won an RTS award for Best Popular Factual Series.
This not-to-be-missed event is another chance for you to learn from highly experienced professionals from the Creative Industries.
