FREE VIDEOS: Wondering what our events are like? Watch Copyright & Work-for-Hire Law with Leading Entertainment Attorney Paul Levine, and Tiny Budget Feature Film Strategies for Frugal Producers free for a limited time.
I think the Copyright & Work-for-Law, in particular, covers very important information every creative needs to know, because what we all do to make a living is create, license, and sell our work. It's shocking how often people sign contracts that effectively give away their work, and how often producers and publishers pay for work they don't own and can't control. Attorney Paul Levine covers important things you need to know.
HERE ARE THE LIVE WORKSHOPS WE HAVE COMING UP
Feb 16 @ 7PM: Finding Good Collaborators and Confederates
In this workshop you learn ways to find and build pleasant, profitable, mutually beneficial, creative collaborations. Specifically, we will look at how to identify, reach out to, and meaningfully connect with people you want to work with. We’ll discuss who you should be looking for, what you should be looking for, what you should be offering, and what to do when relationships you have begun don’t turn out to be a great fit. This is an important workshop for you if you feel isolated and cut off from the kind of creative and professional relationships you want.
Feb 23 @ 7pm 10 Visibility Strategies to Maximize Revenue & New Opportunities
How do you know you want to work with Stephen Spielberg, Benedict Cumberbatch, Stephen King, Aaron Sorkin, or any of the famous and not-so-famous people you hope to be on a project with someday? You know because they are visible. You know what kind of work they do and how good they are at it. You know what sets them apart. You and your work have to be visible if you want to thrive. As long as you and your work remain invisible, no one knows what you stand for, what kind of work you do, or why they should want to involve you in their projects. In some cases, you need to be visible to the entire world. In some cases, you need to be visible just to people who hire people like you. In this workshop, you learn ten easy-to-follow-recipes for quickly making you and what you do more visible and more important to those who matter most.
