Meet The Producers #3: Michael Salmon – Producers Place Oct 11th

Michael Salmon is a guest on our panel discussion on October 11th at Chapter.

Name Mike Salmon
Age 28
How do you describe what you do? Producer and Project Manager
How did you get started? I started in theatre administration back in 2008 when I joined the Sherman Theatre Company (now Sherman Cymru). After a brief stint working in feature film finance, I joined the newly created NTW as one of its founding members.
What work are you proudest of? My input into the foundation of NTW and the establishment of my own company Waking Exploits.
What’s been the most challenging? Working on aspirational projects with short lead-in times and small budgets (this is a positive challenge to have as a Producer and also a thrill!)
What’s the best piece of advice you could give someone wanting to do what you do? Do it, but don’t be afraid to ask for help. People will depend on you, and you need to be confident that you can deliver. People are always happy to help and share knowledge, so don’t be afraid to ask.
What’s your ambition for theatre from Wales? I have an ambition and passion to see the best work from Wales staged throughout the UK and internationally on a regular basis. We have a wealth of talent that we need to be proud of.
