The Acting Podcast

Ep. 4: BGB Creators: Queen’s Gambit Films

Show Notes

Creating your own work empowers you to take control of your own career. Natalie Britton and Kate Hamilton both started their careers as actors and are now well-versed in the fundamental shift that happens when you start making opportunities for yourself. They have combined experience producing over 17 award-winning short films in a 2 year time period, most recently under the umbrella of their production company “Queen’s Gambit Films.” Listen in as Risa and Steve sit down and talk with these two powerhouse producer-actors, discussing everything from making the move from acting to producing, balancing creativity and parenthood, advice for first-time filmmakers, and the importance of giving yourself permission to take the next step into your own artistic and career success. This is a must-hear conversation!

“We’re always looking for permission from other people, looking for the yes. Sometimes, we need to give the YES to ourselves. What’s the harm in trying? Try it and see what happens.”
