Talent is only one part of being a successful screenwriter. Navigating the complicated movie industry, with its many layers of professional personnel, is another. This course explains how to find an agent and what can realistically be expected from one. Learn what is involved in working with agents, producers, production companies, and studio executives. Guest speakers include agents, producers, development executives, studio executives, and screenwriters from organizations such as the William Morris Agency and Fox and from New York–based production companies who tell you what it takes to do business with them. This course is useful for aspiring producers and development executives as well as screenwriters.
