The partnerships entered, and the financing decisions made at the very beginning will impact the life of the project for many years - even decades - to come. It is essential to know your rights and be well-informed and strategic to ensure maximum returns on both a creative and financial level. As a mid-career producer or small business owner, you now understand your obligations from a legal, employer and business perspective. On the creative side, you own the rights to a slate of long-form projects in various stages of development. So, what are the next steps when a project is ready to take to market? What sort of deals are on offer when it comes to partnering up? Is co-production the right model for your project? Do you know where and how to source your finance? Are you ready to engage with buyers? Key course takeaways include: How to negotiate the best deal for you and your project when partnering. Navigate the pros and cons of official and unofficial co-productions. Learn the strategy behind creating a finance plan for television and film.
