Want to be a film producer? Meet Maggie Miles

The Paper Planes and Van Diemen's Land producer says: 'It’s just tenacity.'

Hi Maggie. I’ve seen you listed online as a producer, an actor, and a producer-slash-actor. What do you say when people ask what do you do?

Well, I’m a producer. And I’m also now writing for drama and directing documentary. I was an actor in the UK but I pretty much stopped doing that when I relocated to Melbourne many years ago.
