FabMc: What celebrity would you rate as a perfect 10 in Uganda here and why?
Nixon: His Excellency the president of the republic of Uganda is the only perfect 10 in Uganda hahaha… Why …he has the fame and public recognition and is wealthy.
FabMc: Let’s talk about your work a little bit what does it take to be a TV producer?
Nixon: A television producer is responsible for overseeing all aspects of a show and ensuring the cast and crew turn out a quality product. It is a job that is equal parts demanding and rewarding, but it is not something you can just walk into
- A bachelor’s degree will give you the tools needed to become a television producer. Your best option is to major in film, video and television production.
- A very creative mind … good eye sight for spotting quality products and finally good social capital are some of the skills needed to become a good TV producer.
FabMc: Walk me through how you would supervise and coordinate the work of camera, lighting, design, and sound crewmembers.
Nixon: For any production, the producer has to be in sync with the rest of the team so a pre production meeting is held before any broadcast…. for me after that…. I leave the rest to my trusted crew…. during the actual production… I pretty much do the supervisions and coordination of the teams.
FabMc: In your experience, what is the key to developing a good team?
Nixon: Commitment… communication … conflict management… and showing appreciation.
FabMc: Tell me how you organize, plan, and prioritize your work.
Nixon: I have a really busy schedule especially at work … so every morning I come up with a “TO DO LIST” Where list is the things I am supposed to do for the day in order … this helps me not forget the small nitty gritties for the day.
FabMc: Tell me about a time when you developed your own way of doing things or were self-motivated to finish an important task.
Nixon: Working with TV has taught me that team work is the most important aspect of any given job … there is no such a time I have thought of doing things by myself or my own way … in most cases it has to be agreed upon by me and the crew.
FabMc: Name a time when your patience was tested. How did you keep your emotions in check?
Nixon: There are so many times my patience has been tested but the most important thing is never to let your emotions take charge.
FabMc: The best part of your work?
Nixon: The best part of my work is having fun while executing my tasks.
FabMc: What is your favorite hangout in Ug?
FabMc: What’s your biggest screw up in the kitchen?
Nixon: Am a very good cook … I’ve never messed up in the kitchen.
FabMc: What’s the most useless talent you have?
Nixon: Am a very good dancer but I don’t use that talent in my day to day work.
FabMc: Any embarrassing childhood memories?
Nixon: I used to dance for my mum on all her Lucky Dube records until she falls asleep hahaha
FabMc: Describe the best date you’ve ever had?
