RENATA FOUCRE / Producer
There’s one quality above all that you’d want in a producer: their willingness to do almost anything to get the shot. We think competing in the Underwater Hockey World Championships is a pretty good proving ground. Yes, a different kind of shot, but holding your breath while diving to the bottom of a pool with a small stick, fighting off defenders to shove a puck into a net, can’t help but shape your creativity and persistence.
She’s proven that time and again while producing and post producing everything from small independent documentaries to huge corporate gigs. Clients such as Adobe, Apple, Google, Barefoot Wines, Cisco, Academy of Art University, Sony, University of Phoenix, XBbox, and Roche have all appreciated her can-do spirit. In 2012, she produced the film “Watershed” for the Redford Center, which entailed a 6 week roadtrip shoot from the headwaters to the delta of the Colorado River. There’s that water thing again.
Foucré grew up in Chicago, was a drum major in a marching band, studied theoretical and applied mechanics in college, until that draw of big water brought her to the Bay Area. Did we mention that she was also bitten by a shark while diving? She still loves the water though. You can’t stop her persistence. That’s a good thing.
