Havas Producer Hudon Answers Five Questions

In the latest installment of our popular feature, Havas Worldwide Senior Integrated Producer Catherine Hudon answers Five Questions with SCREEN.

SCREEN: Favorite guilty pleasure TV show?

HUDON: Naked and Afraid - I once binged watched it with my daughter for 8 hours. It's a show about what happens when you put two complete strangers - sans clothing - in some of the most extreme environments on Earth. It's totally crazy!

SCREEN: Most famous person you’ve ever met?

HUDON: Michael Hutchence from INXS two weeks before he passed. In a former life, I was a music editor for a magazine.

SCREEN: What’s the best thing you ever ate?

HUDON: Soon dooboo which is silken tofu soup with beef, seafood and vegetables with freshly made rice. It's a Korean soup/stew that I am obsessed with. I dream about it sometimes.

SCREEN: Best advice you’ve ever been given?

HUDON: "Recline into yourself." Advice given to me by the poet Amiri Baraka (whom at the time I didn't recognize) he and I sparked one of the most epic conversations of my life while I was at my favorite pub in Chicago the Red Lion, while I was in music school at DePaul. I was having an existential crisis this day, and he helped me through it.

SCREEN: Anything you’ll be doing differently in 2017?

HUDON: Having MORE fun!


SCREEN: Give us the one song/track we can’t live without that we haven’t heard of yet?

HUDON: Not sure if others could live without it, but the Bb Piano Sonata #960 by Franz Schubert, or any of his late works for that matter. I am currently listening to every interpretation I can find. These works were composed when he had late stages of syphilis and his music became a symbol of life, and that sense of life was permeated with death. These pieces became his homage to the everlasting beauty of life. Super profound.

SCREEN: Any predictions for 2017?

HUDON: In 2017 I predict that everything in life will continue to temporary. Live and enjoy it, people!!!!!
