Life In The Producer’s World

I decided to interview a good friend of mine. I haven’t met her in person but have talked to her online for four years now. She is someone that I look up to and admire she has come so far in her career as a producer. Candace Charee Basques is CEO and the founder of Frame 7 productions and she went to school at Heritage Academy. The first time that I even heard about Candace was at a Twilight Convention back in September of the year 2010, she was the entertainment at the Karaoke night she sang two of her new songs that she had been working on.  Unfortunately, I never really got to introduce myself to her until I got home and found her on Twitter and Facebook. We just started talking and have been ever since the convention. I conducted the interview over the phone because she lives in Mesa, Arizona.  It was very interesting to find out more about what she does in her career as a producer and how far she has grown in her career. A typical day for Candace usually consists of taking her son to school and getting her husband’s lunch ready for work. While they are off at school and work Candace is writing emails, making phone calls for her new project called Significance which is a movie/television show. She is not only a producer she is also a writer currently her and her husband are writing a novel together. She is still working on her music company that she is CEO of is her agency for everything that she does in her career. She has been working on her current project Significance for over a year now, this project is the one that she is most proud of. Significance is actually based on a best seller book series which has a total of four books in the series. Significance has a very well known cast with people such as Jeremy Sumpter who played Peter Pan in the movie Peter Pan and Michael Welch who played Mike Newton in Twilight. Candace has a Facebook fan page for Significance when she first started this page they only had 1,000 fans now they have 7,000 fans, she just makes it personal by offering prizes, and talking with the fans on the page and tell them more about the project. She has 3 or 5 interns that help run the page as much as possible.  She said the one thing that she wished she would of known before starting in her career was the movie industry. This is a field that I am most interested in pursuing in the future she gave me some tips for anyone wanting to be in this industry. Number one find a mentor someone that has done this before and you can learn the ropes from. Number two make connections and have business conversations. Number three go to every event be at the places where you know celebrities might be. Lastly, number four find a project that you are passionate about and toughen up be positive, don’t let negativity get to you.
