Watch This Session

Listen we get it, we would all prefer our work to be discovered by a hotshot producer, for the Limmo to arrive and drive us to the premiere… But that’s a fairytale. It may come true for a select lucky few (though we don’t think it’s even true then, it’s ‘spin’), but can you risk you dreams and career on such staggeringly poor odds? Why wait to be discovered? Take action an create your own destiny.

In this session we will look at how to go about self producing your own work and why so many writers are now leveraging cost effective technology, readily available talent and web funding platforms to get their scripts to set.

It’s not as scary as you might think and it’s a whole lot more rewarding when you get to your own premiere.
