MASTER CLASS #3 2015 – “RUNNING SHOWS”
Orchestrating your Show From Scratch To Screen.
“Showrunners are ‘Hyphenates’ – a curious hybrid of starry-eyed artists and tough-as-nails operational managers. It’s one of the most unusual and demanding, right-brain/left-brain job descriptions in the entertainment world.”
This master class explores the showrunner’s essential skills from running productions as a business while balancing the delivery of the creative content to the highest standards; manage creative teams, control budgets, make decisions in split seconds, navigate stakeholder interests and win audiences to secure re-commissions.
Learn from those who know & do: HOW TO MAKE THE SHOW & HOW TO MAKE THE MONEY.
