The Makings of a Producer I had no idea what producing was for a long time.

I had no idea what producing was for a long time. When I was younger, I honestly had this idea that producers were sort of like concessions people at movie theaters—the ones that were in charge of ticket sales and snacks. It turns out that I was very far off. Producers play an important role in making sure all of the wheels are spinning behind the scenes. What I mean by that, is that if you don’t have a producer for a big series, then things are going to be a big chaotic mess before, during, and after production. As someone interested in producing, speaking with the producers of “A World Beneath” was an exciting prospect. New to the business side of the film industry, Jordan Moffett was the first producer I got the opportunity to talk to.
I find that talking to people who are just getting started in the industry can be just as motivating as talking to someone who’s been in the game for a while. I think that might be because of how excited they are to finally dive into what they love. There’s just something uplifting about it. When speaking with Jordan, I noticed how eager to work and how passionate he is about this project. Hearing his background and his reasoning behind wanting to take part in “A World Beneath,” was something special. Jordan, like Dr. Lupu, also has a background in archaeology. With a father who was a geologist, traveling became very prevalent throughout his life. He explained to me that his father was a big inspiration in becoming an archaeologist. The traveling that they did led him to fall in love with the adventures and the cultures of other countries.
In regards to the series, Jordan hopes to show people the more realistic side of archaeology. Similar to Dr. Lupu, he’s looking forward to exploring unique cultures around the world. Additionally, he wants to give people a better idea of what archaeologists do and the importance of looking into the past. If there’s one thing that I can take away from talking to the crew for “A World Beneath,” it’s that archaeology is vital, and I certainly think that everyone should have a better understanding of it.
Stay tuned for more updates!
