Creating a Production Company: FREE Event
At a Glance
If you've ever thought about starting a Production Company… Now’s the time!
Why a production company? Because it gives you the power to take control. In order to have a successful production company, you need to understand the role of the producer and how they fit within the industry.
Meet authors/producers, Rona Edwards and Monika Skerbelis on Saturday, February 4 at 11am for a special FREE event presentation at The Writers Store. Hear valuable pointers on what it takes to create a production company.
This lecture is a precursor to a more intensive six-week online course, Creating A Production Company, which begins February 8 - March 15. In this class, you'll learn exactly what's necessary to hang your shingle in Hollywood. From thinking like a producer to creating strategies for the kinds of movies, television and digital media you want to produce, you'll get valuable tips that will help you structure your company, find and option material, work with writers and talent, and create your own network of industry pros. At the end of the course, you'll have the confidence and knowledge to continue your journey towards success in the film industry.
This is not a "how to produce a movie" online course but rather an innovative look at how to set up a company and the systems necessary to facilitate and manage a thriving creative production company.
Taught by Rona Edwards and Monika Skerbelis – authors, producers, film festival programmers and former studio and production company executives (Universal Pictures, 20th Century Fox, John Larroquette's Port Street Films and Michael Phillips Productions, to name a few). Purchase the brand new 3rd Edition of I Liked It, Didn't Love It (Screenplay Development From the Inside Out), Edwards & Skerbelis’ quintessential book on the development process (something every production company should have) and have it personally autographed by Rona & Monika. Or, if you want to know everything there is to know about film festivals, the authors will be available to sign their other bestselling, critically acclaimed book, The Complete Filmmaker's Guide to Film Festivals: Your All Access Pass to Launching Your Film on the Festival Circuit. If your production company plans to invest time and effort going the film festival route for its projects, then this will be an indispensable book to help you achieve that. It's the start of a brand new year! It's time to invest in you and your projects. Join Edwards & Skerbelis and let them inspire you to take the necessary steps towards a thriving filmmaking career.
Learn from the pros – Let us help you succeed!
