When we started Indie Agency News, we had some idea about where we wanted to track—especially related to honoring the hard-working people at indie agencies. First, we knew that we wanted to honor people each month instead of a big ‘ol show. There are plenty of great awards that are worth pursuing, but we felt this was more our speed.
The next question was: What role do we honor first?
The first idea came from my experience as an audio and show producer. It was solidified as I recalled my agency days observing and working with producers.
So there we go, producers.
I remain in awe of agency producers. What they conjure up is magical and an important glue in making great work, and we’re proud to recognize these great professionals who keep the indie spirit alive.
Enjoy the time we spent with some of the honorees and learning more about the great work done at indie agencies by producers who continue to create magical moments.
