Liz Sayre is the Executive Vice President of Physical Production at Fox Searchlight Pictures. Catch that? EVP. She cracked the code. She worked her way up the production ladder fairly quickly, working with Paul Mazursky, where she learned every aspect of producing a film, from development through distribution. From there, she served as a Production Executive at Walt Disney Studios and currently at Fox Searchlight.
We talked about distribution of labor at home, the essential morning walking meeting, and what partnership really looks like. Also, she wonders why young women would distance themselves from Feminism. What do they think it means?
And, she worked with J.J. Abrams before he was J.J. Abrams.
If you would like to hear more from Liz, you are in luck. Here is her BONUS episode - Tales from the Trenches.
She has stories from 9/11, the unfortunate Black Swan, and an alarming number of moviemakers smoking marijuana in all the wrong places. SMH, Hollywood.
