Creators looking to break into the business often neglect one major thing: the purpose of a business. Which is to make money

Through interactive group exercises and role-playing scenarios, students will learn what it's like to be in the Executive chair, and learn how to apply this critical knowledge to their own creative ideas. 

 

Jason currently develops at Sony Pictures with the Creators of Homeland and 24, and the former President of CBS Studios. He brings insider knowledge that's unparalleled to any other industry-related class.

Guest Lecturers: Jason also taps into his network and invites guest lecturers to discuss their experience on the BUSINESS side of Development. Past guest lecturers include Development Executives from Amazon Studios, Sony Pictures, and CBS Studios.

You do NOT need to currently have a finished script or pilot, you do NOT need to be currently signed to an agent, you do NOT need to be currently pitching studios or networks. This class lays the foundation for how you can start doing all of those things.

  • How to ADAPT your creative ideas to current market trends

  • How to IDENTIFY & UTILIZE I.P. (the #1 trend in TV/Film)

  • How to PACKAGE your creative ideas to attract major interest

  • How to UNDERSTAND & LEVERAGE all the major facets of the business
