At a Glance
Why a production company? 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, January 12 at 2pm for a special FREE event presentation at The Writers Store. Hear valuable pointers on what it takes to create a production company.
Purchase your personally autographed copy of I Liked It, Didn't Love It (Screenplay Development From the Inside Out), the quintessential book on the development process (something every production company should have). In addition, the authors will be available to answer questions about their latest 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 in the film festival route for its projects, this is the ultimate book you need 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 flourishing filmmaking career.
In their six-week online course, Creating A Production Company, beginning January 30 - March 6, 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 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.
