MPI Filmmakers Learn From Top Hollywood Executives

Last weekend, we ran our annual Business of Film workshop. This weekend-long workshop equips filmmakers with the fundamentals of how to start and run a production company, negotiate effective contracts, pitch and sell projects, market for profitability and impact, finance their films, and more.  

Participants learned from industry experts Rob Mitchell (CFO, Bold Films), Ralph Winter (producer, X-Men films), Jessica Johnson (TV and New Media Entertainment Contracts Manager, SAG-AFTRA), and Tiffany Atwood (CEO, RPM Talent Group), among others.

Our filmmakers raved:

You guys did such a great job of getting a diverse array of expertise. From agents, to producers, to line producers, to marketers, to writers, to directors, each each speaker gave us entirely unique and useful insight into the film business. It was efficient beyond expectation.
This is—by far—the best workshop/summit experience I have ever had.
This event was so well organized, so well constructed, so carefully planned. It was truly a testament to the hard work and the dedication that you put towards your mission statement. I would jump on any future MPI events in a heartbeat.
