Producer Kai Cole talks Much Ado, Joss Whedon, and more. It's an interview with The Credits ("a digital magazine that celebrates the hard work and creativity that goes into making the movies and television shows we all love" published by the MPAA), which I found via who Joss is following on Twitter.

Really great interview. "Don't call the police" Ha!
I don't think I've ever read an interview from her before. She sounds nice. Really looking forward to seeing the house.

new hero.
Kai Cole is so cool! #nosurprise

A producer client of mine once told me that her only talent was never taking no for an answer and always finding workaround solutions. Kai sounds exactly like what a good producer should be.
I've definitely never read an interview w/ Kai - it was so cool to hear from her. She's a breath of fresh air.

"...I just don’t understand why people have to do things the way they always say they have to do them. It makes me crazy."

So much yes. Everything I've ever done/worked on or in, this has driven me cuckoo. Recently while building a café we heard that *constantly* and it took overcoming so much resistance to get it the way we wanted.

Luckily we had a great architect. (Great architects are ten kinds of awesome.)

But "how it's always" done has made me NUTSO CRAZY FRUSTRATED in every field I've worked in. (A fair few...)

This interview is a great find - I've always wanted to get a chance to hear from her.
Wow, we rarely hear from Kai herself. That was a great interview.
I only wish they'd asked for an update on In Your Eyes.
I love the idea that there was no need to make snacks for the kids when they got home - they just ate from craft services.
And since another report said it was really good craft services, I wonder if there was complaining when they went back to plain old P&J sandwiches or whatever?
I absolutely love to hear from Kai. I know sometimes famous couples like to have one partner shy away from publicity so their children will have some sense of normality (I'm think Peter Jackson's wife specifically), which I totally respect, but in the frenzy of Much Ado reviews I'd been really wishing we got to hear from her about her experience. Thanks for posting!
