The Know Business of Show Business with Tina Sacco

Many authors dream of seeing their novel on the big screen, hobnobbing with “the beautiful people” or walking the premiere red carpet.  Whether they get “the call” from a producer seeking film rights or plan to plunge headfirst into the production pool, these writers should have some knowledge of how story elements can affect production needs, costs and marketability.

The Know Business of Show Business is a production primer for authors.  Learn how story elements affect budget and the possible sale of movie rights or an author’s self-produced film efforts.
