Being a Digital Producer

My name is Maya Gabrielle

I work in London, as the Senior Digital Producer for the National Theatre, and live in Brighton.

I sit on the Digital Strategy Committee for BAFTA and LIFT.

On this blog I post about the arts, digital, the National Theatre and anything else that tickles my fancy.

I love to talk at conferences and sit on panels, so check out my biography if you are looking for a digital rent-a-mouth. All thoughts and comments are happily my own and are not the opinions of any organisation I may be affiliated with.

Thanks to the lovely gang at LIFT, I got to do Decoded’s ‘Code in a Day’ course. It was great. Refreshing old knowns that I’d ceased to question, and bringing me right up to date with current best practice and the smart approach to responsive design. I even built an app. I love learning.

This is a short film I produced about the history of Shakespeare at the National theatre under it’s first four artistic directors, featuring the marvellous Daniel Rosenthal, and picture of many of the greats, including Peter O’Toole, Judi Dench, Antony Hopkins, Joseph Fiennes, Ian McKellen and Zoe Wanamaker.
