The Business Side of Screenwriting – What Every Writer Should Know

Event Date: Saturday, April 20, 2019 || Speaker: Steve Kaire || Check-in: 12:30 pm ||

The entertainment business is part entertainment and mostly business. Writers think their only job is to create the material and let someone else take care of business and legal matters. Of the 8 projects Steve sold or optioned, he negotiated 7 of those deals himself, without representation. At the very least, you should have a basic understanding of how the business works. See more details below:
