Congratulations! You have a blazing hot script. That’s just the first thing you need to sell projects and get hired. Producers and executives also have to be excited about being in business with you. In order to compete in the entertainment industry you have to subtly “sell” yourself without being obvious or annoying – the one thing most writers hate to do. This hands-on seminar helps you get over that feeling by giving you the tools to create your own personal PR strategy, so you can easily answer the questions:
“What do you do?”
“Tell me about yourself”
“What makes you memorable?”
