MASTER CLASS #3 2015 – “RUNNING SHOWS”

Orchestrating your Show From Scratch To Screen.

 

OVERVIEW

“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.

Every day focuses on a different genre to understand and appreciate the different creative dynamics and business challenges. Learn directly from the leading practitioners: HOW TO MAKE THE SHOW & HOW TO MAKE THE MONEY.

About WeWork

OUR MISSION: TO CREATE A WORLD WHERE PEOPLE WORK TO MAKE A LIFE, NOT JUST A LIVING.

When we started WeWork in 2010, we wanted to build more than beautiful, shared office spaces. We wanted to build a community. A place you join as an individual, ‘me’, but where you become part of a greater ‘we’. A place where we’re redefining success measured by personal fulfillment, not just the bottom line. Community is our catalyst. Our mission doesn’t end with the small businesses and entrepreneurs that call us home. We believe in empowering our team to create their own life’s work. We move fast and we challenge each other, but we look after each other and care about our culture, which makes working here extremely rewarding. There’s a lot of work left for us to do, and we couldn’t do it without a single member of our team.

WeWork provides more than 25,000 members across the globe with space, community, and services through physical and virtual offerings. Based in New York City, WeWork currently has 42 physical locations in fifteen cities and four countries around the world.
