Your Screenwriting Brand: From Personal Presentation to Meeting Preparation

Event Date: Saturday, January 24, 2015 || Speaker: Lee Jessup || Check-in: 12:30 pm ||

Careers are rarely built on any one script these days; instead, they are build on the writer’s identity and voice, and nowhere are those more powerful than in the materials you use to introduce yourself. In today’s shifting industry climate where single script sales present a challenge, agents, managers, development executives and producers are seeking to get involved with content creators who will deliver again and again, complete with a strong understanding of not only how to market their work, but also how to position their personal narrative and brand, the sort that executives want to work with, and reps want to sell.



**The deadline has passed and REGISTRATION is now CLOSED for this event. Please view our calendar for upcoming events.

Check-in begins at 12:30 pm.
Event starts at 1:00 pm.

No Refunds. No Credits.


Remember: Executives get in business with people, not with a piece of paper. They want to know that you understand how to present both your material and yourself. In order to take you on as a client or a creative partner, they want to know that they can send you on a general meeting or a pitch assignment in which you will thrive and impress. Those are the skills that will get you into the room again and again.
