Producing Emmy-nominated Indie Films with Carolina Groppa

June 29, 2021

On today’s show, Giles Alderson and co-host Dom Lenoir chat with producer Carolina Groppa. She is an Emmy-nominated producer of such films as Miss Virginia (2019), Hysterical (2021), and the rather excellent Autism in Love (2015).

They dive deep into her journey, from her beginnings as an actress to becoming a producer in Hollywood, how she built her career, and what it was like to be the talk of the town. She discusses the difference between producing narrative feature films and documentaries, her producer’s life, and why it’s important to cherish the little moments on set.

Carolina gives great advice on how to start a career. This episode is a masterclass for aspiring producers. So sit back, relax and enjoy this week’s conversation with Carolina Groppa.
