Watch This Session

Getting the Hollywood deal is the Holy Grail for some writers, yet it remains elusive, even mythical to many of us.

What are the steps you need to take to make it in LA? How long will it take? How do you create the powerful relationships you will need? What sells and why?

Our panel of active Hollywood producers, Iain Smith, Luke Ryan, and Ned Dowd and Sarah Scougal will answer these questions, and reveal just how your script could end up being made by the studios, with big name stars… with all the future career possibilities that come along with that juggernaut?
