Negotiation is an art. Whether you are
negotiating a funding contract, a broadcast license, a distribution deal
or a partnership agreement, you have to be strategic to achieve your
goals. This workshop led by Larry Studnicky, a leading lawyer with more
than twenty years of successful experience negotiating on behalf of a
wide range of clients from Dreamworks to LL Cool J, will focus on the
fine points of contract negotiating. Learn how to engage in this
delicate dance with confidence. You'll come away from this workshop with
new skills and a much deeper understanding of what you need to know for
your next negotiation. Bring your questions.
of Fundraising: An Essential Overview of the Basics
Wed, October 24 | 6:30 – 8:30
Fundraising for documentaries can be intimidating and even
overwhelming for those who are new to it. But without it, even
the best film ideas will never be realized. This workshop is
designed for filmmakers who are considering a funding proposal,
identified a likely project funder or pitched a project to a
potential funder or broadcaster. Topics include: proposal
writing, grant-seeking from private and government foundations,
fundraising from individuals, and targeted appeals through
events and on-line solicitations. Attendees will receive an
essential packet of fundraising tips and resources. Presented by
Tracie Holder, filmmaker, fundraiser and consultant to WMM's
Production Assistance Program.
