Production Guild of Great Britain announce Yorkshire Committee

The Production Guild of Great Britain (PGGB) has announced the members of its new Yorkshire Committee, the sixth and final National and Regional Committee to be established by the leading UK membership body for production professionals, as part of its drive to increase representation for the British film and High-end TV production workforce.

The PGGB Yorkshire Committee is sponsored by Location One and Sunbelt Rentals UK and supported by VERSA Studios. It is chaired by York-based line producer and writer/director Liza Bolton. Vice Chairs are Ian Pearce and Lynn Roberts. Committee members are Production Accountant Wayne Noir and Faizal Harshim.

Liza Bolton:

“I am very pleased to be chairing this Committee. Yorkshire is such a special region to shoot in and has been exceptionally good to me and the projects I have worked on – great crews, studios, stunning and hugely diverse locations and great facilities on the doorstep. I have been fortunate to shoot in many of these and I’m looking forward to sharing and promoting all that Yorkshire has to offer to film and TV makers.”

PGGB’s Yorkshire Committee is the sixth and final PGGB National and Regional Committee to be established. The other Committees are Bristol and South West England, Northern Ireland, North West England, Wales and Scotland. Locations have been chosen in line with the British Film Commission’s Stage Space Support Development hub centers.

Each committee meets a minimum of four times per year and delivers a variety of activities within their area including forums, masterclasses and networking events. PGGB’s Chair and CEO meet with the six National and Regional Committee Chairs annually as a steering group.

Lyndsay Duthie, PGGB CEO:

“We are delighted to have brought together such a strong Committee for Yorkshire, a major English hub for domestic and international production that generates outstanding homegrown content for the big and small screen; like Happy Valley, Gentleman Jack, Ali & Ava and The Railway Children Return.

“With all six of our National and Regional Committees now in place, PGGB is far better placed to understand priorities for the production workforce across the length and breadth of the UK. This makes us better informed to target PGGB training opportunities and partnership initiatives to support members wherever they are based.”
