Job Title: Executive Producer, Mosaic Entertainment
Why She’s Top 40: She provides a platform for local actors to showcase their talents to large audiences, while creatively thinking outside the television box.
Guilty Pleasure: “Probably watching TV. As much as it is a guilty pleasure, we need to do more of it.”
When it comes to television production, Camille Beaudoin understands that the characters in her shows can communicate with audiences in many ways, whether it’s on a TV, phone, tablet or computer. So, when the comedic couple, Delmer and Marta from Caution: May Contain Nuts got their own spin-off, they also got their own interactive website. Beaudoin, the show’s executive producer, had actors Howie Miller and Sheldon Elter film over 600 different answers to questions that would pertain to people’s careers and love lives for a fortune-telling website.
It illustrated the creativity behind Mosaic Entertainment. “We’re really trying to work more with the digital start-ups and trying to bridge that gap between content producers and the digital world,” says Beaudoin, who works with her husband and another partner.
Mosaic also produces Tiny Plastic Men, which airs on Super Channel and stars Top 40 Under 40 alumnus Chris Craddock. Along with producing the show, which follows the lives of several toy testers, the team is also producing mobile apps to go with both the second and third season of the show. “It’s just trying to think outside the traditional: ‘We’re making a TV show’ type of thing,” says Beaudoin.
She’s still serious about making not-so-serious TV shows, though. Caution: May Contain Nuts, a sketch comedy series, was Mosaic’s first venture. It provided a space for local talent who often weren’t given the chance on screen. “And they deserve to be; they’re incredibly talented people,” says Beaudoin.
While she loves her work, her eyes light up when speaking of her family, which consists of two little ones, and a third on the way. Her role as an executive producer with her husband as a partner is more a lifestyle than it is a job. “We’ll probably slow down a bit when we get older, but I don’t want to stop what I’m doing completely,” says Beaudoin.
