ABOUT THE WEBINAR

Over the last decade, Robert McKee was repeatedly called upon by corporations, big and medium sized, domestic and international alike, to help their creative and leadership teams learn how to tell stories. As these calls came in more frequently, Robert looked deeper into this phenomenon and gained insight into why. Thus, McKee’s STORYNOMICS was born.

Why would business and political worlds need to learn storytelling? Why the shift from the traditional marketing and advertising to storyfied marketing and branding? Why is storytelling becoming the new force for the economic sector?

And for you, the Stage 32 community: What does this have to do with your creative work and what is STORYNOMICS?

The Corporate world needs creative writers, producers, directors and more. They will give you the freedom to do what you are passionate about. They need your creativity, and your stories, to flourish.

At this Stage 32 Webinar, McKee will share and discuss with you the sweeping changes in the corporate world and how this will matter to you and your creativity.

Testimonials:

Peter Jackson (writer/director THE LORD OF THE RINGS Trilogy, THE HOBBIT) has lauded him as “The Guru of Gurus.” For the writers of Pixar (creators of TOY STORY 1, 2, & 3, FINDING NEMO), McKee’s STORY Seminar is a rite of passage.

Emmy Award-Winner Brian Cox also portrayed McKee in the Oscar-nominated film ADAPTATION.

"[Robert McKee] is, as you know if you’ve gone to one of his seminars, an incredible teacher! I went to his Story Seminar in NYC about 10 years ago, and it/he was riveting! Multiple days, long hours in a chair, packed ballroom of a midtown NYC hotel, no visual aids . . . he just stood or sat on a stage with a microphone and pitcher of water and talked. The man is brilliant! Even though I was a professional writer at that point (books, critiques, essays, stints teaching at the college level), I came away tremendously impressed (can you tell? ) and grateful for the knowledge I gained from him. Hopefully, Stage 32 will be able to encourage Mr. McKee to do some more webinars! I’m looking forward to learning from him again next Tuesday!" ~ Judy N.

Using Self-Publishing to Enhance Your Screenwriting Career

The new wave of indie publishing has taken the book industry by storm. Previously unknown and/or unpublished authors are making a living—sometimes a prosperous living--by writing. Traditionally published authors are also developing hybrid careers, where they write for their publishers as well as self-publish. Some successful indie authors are also catching the attention of traditional publishers, who are acquiring their books.  Screenwriters may struggle to find recognition for their work and make a living with their writing. Often screenwriters must have a “day” job in order to survive, which can leave little time and energy to pursue their dreams of success. Adapting screenplays into a books may produce extra income and recognition, as well as provide other benefits to a screenwriting career. In this Stage 32 Webinar, Debra Holland will discuss her journey from an unpublished author to a NY Times Bestselling author. In her six years of indie publishing, Debra has sold more than a million books and has made a six-figure income for the last five. She’ll introduce you to self-publishing, provide some tips for adapting your screenplays into books, cover basics to get you started in indie publishing, and help you consider whether self-publishing your screenplays as books might be conducive to your career as a screenwriter.

Content is King – How To Control The Rights To Source Material And Pay Nothing

Bonus! Get 2 contract templates: Option Agreement Template & Producer Attachment Agreement "Conrad you were so very informative, had absolutely great advice, information a person would need to understand when going to a meeting for negotiations with executives. You covered most everything I wanted to ask. Thank you stage 32, this was the best webinar I have taken." - Diane K. "Great summation of the ins and outs of right options. Thank you for the contract templates." - Karla T.   Ideas for movies, TV shows, web series etc. can come from anywhere. Often times it’s an original idea that comes from within your own creative mind, but as you know, a lot of the best stories can be based on other source material like books, real people’s lives, big brands, or any other already existing property. In all of the latter scenarios, you can’t legally create your vision without controlling the rights to the source material. This often discourages people from pursuing these rights because it involves contracts, dealing with rights holders and costs money. In this Stage 32 Next Level Webinar, Conrad Sun will change your perspective not only on how to acquire the rights to material, but how to develop great story ideas. He will explore creative ways on how to find and control the rights to stories that you’re passionate about without having to pay for them. Whether you’re a writer looking to adapt a screenplay, or a producer looking to set up a property with a financier, this webinar will provide useful information how to effectively control the rights to your passion project and hopefully lead to its creation. Conrad Sun is currently working as a TV Lit Manager and Development Executive at Meridian Artists in Los Angeles and represents TV writers in both the comedy and drama space.

Conrad is also the founder of the popular website FilmEscape, an online resource and encyclopedia for learning anything relating to the film and television industry.
