Hacking the System: How to reverse-engineer Hollywood

Sometimes the best idea isn’t the one that seems straightforward. Take getting a concept from script to screen—it’s not always a direct line, and a detour into another medium like books may be the best way forward. Learn how to reverse-engineer a film or TV concept by launching it as a publication first…and then selling it back to Hollywood. This panel of writers will give a step-by-step breakdown of how to use Hollywood’s hunger for IPs to hack the system and show how they pushed their passion projects from page to screen.
