THE CLUB is the new membership programme for partners, faculty and alumni of The Entertainment Master Class.
With the launch of THE CLUB we aim to create a community that would specifically benefit and reward members of the Entertainment Master Class while re-inventing the membership model with a customized approach that combines perks with personal mentorship and access to exclusive networking opportunities.
MEMBERS OF THE CLUB RECEIVE ACCESS TO THE PITCH CLUB AND A SUBSCRIPTION TO SHOWRUNNER MAGAZINE:
PITCH CLUB: “What’s Your Story?”
The PITCH CLUB is a cross-disciplinary talent discovery and research programme is dedicated to dialogue and collaboration between different creative industries.
It’s all about connecting creators. We unite the inventors, scientists and designers behind the most intriguing new technologies with screenwriters, directors and television showrunners to jointly master the art and science of storytelling. The PITCH CLUB is designed as a global roadshow series. At each stop-over we host themed PITCH CLUB events and select new creative teams into our PITCH CLUB network. Previous locations have included Berlin, New York, Tokyo, Cambridge and Tel Aviv. The locations for 2015 are Cologne, Copenhagen, New York, Vienna, Toronto and Miami.
“Showrunners are ‘Hyphenates’ – a curious hybrid of starry-eyed artists and tough-as-nails operational managers. They’re not just writers; they’re not just producers. They hire and fire writers and crew members, develop story lines, write scripts, cast actors, mind budgets and run interference with studio and network bosses. It’s one of the most unusual and demanding, right-brain/left-brain job descriptions in the entertainment world.”
/SHOWRUNNER MAG/ features people and projects on the intersection of entertainment, technology, design, science and education. It’s where Artist meets Entrepreneur.
