I’m newish to being a film producer after rotating from account at my ad agency. I love my current role but I’m wondering what my future career options could be. I like the idea of going brand side, or going freelance (if I have the connections). I don’t think I’d want to line produce at a prod. company, or work at another ad agency. Are there any other types of roles that I can consider, but I’m just not aware of yet due to lack of experience? Would love to hear any personal stories too.

Currently in the final round of interviews for a position at a larger agency, with a title increase and salary bump. I think it could really help me in my career. The problem is, I don’t want to be a producer forever. Eventually I’d like to move in house, preferably tech, but I have no idea what my game plan should be. Should I try to move to a different department before eventually going in house? Is it possible to switch things up without starting over from the beginning?

When you leave a position for another agency, do you tell your manager where you are going? I will potentially be resigning for the first time for a promo elsewhere, so unsure of procedure.

Also, if I call my manager (CD) to let him know, I don’t also need to call my boss’s boss (ECD / VP type), correct? I would think I just include him in the resignation email along with my CD and Exec producer (I’m production side).

I pitched a project at work and my company loved it. They want to turn it into a full fleged series. I created pitch docs, episode treatments, etc that they are using to gauge interest from production companies & streamers. They have not guaranteed what my role would be on the series or if I will be on set. What would be a reasonable ask? Could I get a "creator" credit or would that go to the company? I want to be the lead producer on the project. Not sure how pay works if a streamer buys it.

I need opinions on this.
Just started a new PM role (at an IPG agency) last month but I recently got hit up by a recruiter from another agency (WPP agency) for a pretty enticing PM role on a 360 AOR account. Further context: The PM role I'm in currently is my first PM role ever (I came from an entry level AE/Producer backgrund)
I know jumping ship for the other PM role would look terrible but tell me why you would OR would not jump ship?
