Advanced Lecture On Movie and Television Negotiations for Fiction Writers

Advanced Business Lecture for Writers: The Basics of Movie and Television Negotiations for Writers. 11 videos.

Negotiating movie or television rights with Hollywood can be dangerous and you don't dare leave it up to an agent or lawyer. You must know what you are doing to protect your work.

This workshop contains concepts on how to negotiate and deal with movie and television people who contact you. And how you even get contacted. (It's called being published.)

These eleven lectures do not give legal or contractual advice, but instead show you what might be possible for you to do in the right circumstances and how to give yourself the best chance of having a movie or television series made from your work.

An awareness workshop. Knowing something works and exists makes up of 90% of the battle.

One of six Advanced Business Lectures to help writers move forward in business.
