Happy Thursday Stage 32 Community!
Since 2011, the Stage 32 team has been working tirelessly to help you stay connected, creative, motivated, and informed. As always, we are committed to bringing you networking opportunities, education and mentoring from top-level industry executives and professionals, and access to decision-makers around the globe all from the comfort of your own home. Recently, to celebrate a successful first quarter of 2021, our fearless leader and CEO Richard "RB" Botto hosted an "Ask Me Anything": The Great Content Gold Rush of 2021 Edition.
We were beyond jazzed to virtually host thousands of Stage 32 members tuning in from every corner of the world, culminating in an invigorating two hours of inspirational and no-bs shop talk from RB.
For months now, RB has been talking about The Great Content Gold Rush of 2021. The entire Stage 32 staff is on the phone everyday with their fingers on the pulse of what is happening in the entertainment industry and the word is unanimous - networks, streaming platforms and producers and other executives need new content. In this special AMA, RB covers The Great Content Gold Rush of 2021 and more.
In this Ask Me Anything, RB answered questions from Stage 32 members, both new and old, about multiple facets of the entertainment industry from craft to business. No matter where you live or what hat(s) you wear in the industry, you are sure to get inspired and stay motivated during this honest and candid talk about the state of the entertainment industry. Here's just some of what RB covered:
- How to Pitch Your Show to Netflix
- When to get Representation as a Director or Actor
- How to Network as an Introvert
- Advice on Adapting a Book Into a Script
- Fundraising Resources for Content Creators
- How to Deal with Rejection
- Opportunities for International screenwriters & filmmakers to work with US streamers
- How to be Good in a Room when Pitching
- Why Crowdsourcing is important
- ... and more!
