SOLD OUT! Master Class: The state of digital distribution

Gusman

VOD, AVOD, TVOD, not to mention Netflix, Amazon and YouTube: There are now more ways than ever to slice licensing rights for digital platforms. How do you decide who gets what? When does it make sense to refuse a global VOD deal to pursue local ones? What platforms are ponying up the most cash? Distribution & digital experts Richard Goldsmith (The Jim Henson Company) and Josh Scherba (DHX Media) and John Robson (Wildbrain) will cover those burning questions and much more.

SOLD OUT! Mentor Class: Structural Engineering for Storytellers

Tuttle

All good stories are as carefully constructed as a skyscraper, and this session will teach budding storytellers the basics of creating two- and three-act structures. Self-proclaimed "story structure engineers" Holly Huckins (Sheriff Callie's Wild WestRugratsRecess) and Carin Greenberg (Tumble LeafLalaloopsyGhostwriter) will be your guides. They'll deconstruct an episode of a popular series to understand how it was built and why it succeeds, discuss the difference between story and character arcs, and examine the importance of conflict.
