The entertainment business is part entertainment and mostly business. Writers think their only job is to create the material and let someone else take care of business and legal matters.
“Of the eight projects
I sold or optioned,
I negotiated seven of those deals
myself without representation.”
At the very least, you should have a basic understanding of how the business works.
STEVE KAIRE has sold eight projects to major studios without representation and is currently co-producing Sherlock’s Secretary for Walden Media. A screenwriter for over 30 years, he holds a master’s degree in Dramatic Writing and has taught writing classes at the American Film Institute.
If you think your script is ready to sell to Hollywood, you can’t afford to miss this special StoryBoard session.
