LA-based Jack Monderer AB '82 will be in Washington, DC and is happy to meet with a few local members over a casual dinner to chat about Acquiring Story Rights for Producers & Writers. With 25 years of film studio experience at Columbia and Fox, Jack managed hundreds of rights situations of every conceivable type.
As a producer or writer, when and how do you initiate a rights agreement? How much of an agreement do you need? Is there any way to price a particular type of material?
Attend this Harvardwood Salon with Jack, who will share his experience and give guidance on these and other story rights issues. Dinner is limited to five attendees (six total, including Jack). The restaurant location will be selected amongst Jack and the confirmed participants. Free to attend, but each attendee will be responsible for their own food/drink at dinner.
To attend, please RSVP below by October 12th!
