MENTOR CLASS: Master the Art of Storyboarding
Making a show without a storyboard is like baking a cake without a recipe. You can do it, but you might end up with an unappetizing mess. Join this hands-on class led by an experienced storyboard artist to learn tips, tricks and best-practice advice that will help you use this development tool to its fullest potential.
MENTOR CLASS: Series Budgeting 101
So you’ve landed a commission, now let’s talk money! With lots of practical exercises, this workshop will teach you how to plan a budget for your first series, exploring elements that are often over- and under-valued, and outlining the most unanticipated expenses that can mess up even the best financial plan.
MENTOR CLASS: Countdown to Licensing
Yes, there is such a thing as too soon when it comes to planning a consumer products strategy. Join licensing veterans Marty Brochstein and Bill Graham on this step-by-step roadmap to figuring out when your property is mature enough for shelf life, whether it can support the categories that will catch a retail buyer’s attention, how to connect with these gatekeepers, and how to shift strategies if you’re not quite there yet.
SOLD OUT!—MASTER CLASS: Anatomy of an SVOD Deal
Join two experienced producers who've successfully negotiated and fulfilled SVOD deals with a variety of platforms—they’ll provide valuable guidance on setting expectations, what happens at each stage of the deal-making process, standard clauses, and how to identify, avoid and deal with common SVOD-contract pitfalls.
MASTER CLASS: Recession-Proof Your Bottom Line
Whether it’s a geo-political economic dip, or the SVOD content market slowing down, every good leader should know how to protect their business from a bubble burst. Join us and learn how to identify risks in your strategy, create a sustainable growth plan that can weather a financial storm, and structure your business to avoid losing everything if demand for what you produce constricts.
MASTER CLASS: Majoring in Trendspotting
Want to know whether you’ve got the next unboxing phenomenon or Hatchimals on your hands? Consumer market tracker Chris Byrne will lead this deep-dive into identifying kid trends with staying power, sharing practical resources for assessment, and outlining safer ways to get in on the ground floor of a burgeoning consumer craze.
