Course DescriptionBeyond being talented, your real success in the competitive freelance industry of feature film and television writing depends on your ability to form a union between your artistic nature and your business know-how. No matter where you are in your career, this course shows you how to achieve that pivotal combination. You learn everything you could do wrong--and make it right--starting with how to pick the ideas everyone is waiting for and how to avoid wasting time. You learn how to recognize winners and avoid choosing the wrong agent, attorney, or manager. You learn how to capitalize on your first sale and stop waiting for someone else to get your career into the next gear. And you learn how to pitch your ideas to their maximum, help close the deal, get an assignment by writing the best possible treatment, and promote the material that you've already written.
