Many of us pick up a pen or a camera because we are driven to share an experience we, or someone we care about, survived. Sometimes we want to sell the story so we can make money. Sometimes we want to sell it to change the world. Before you spend years, even decades, trying to write a book or screenplay, and before you hire someone to create one for you, learn the fastest, most accurate, least expensive way to capture and protect your story. Then learn about ways you can swiftly begin to sell it.
This is the perfect event for anyone who wants to sell a story to Hollywood or to news media, and for anyone currently contemplating writing a memoir. What you learn will save you thousands of dollars, many months or years, and provide you with protections it will otherwise difficult for you to acquire.
Note: The location for this event will be sent out 24 hours before the event to those who register. No refunds after June 6.
In this event you will learn:
- Why true life stories are valuable.
- How you can swiftly capture and protect your true life stories swiftly, cost effectively, and easily.
- How capturing your work yourself before working with third parties like ghost writers or contract filmmakers provides critical long term benefits.
- How you can begin selling your true life story to the general public, interested audiences, publishers, and producers swiftly.
- The difference between licensing and selling intellectual property
- How to pitch writers, filmmakers, publishers, and producers stories you’ve captured
You will receive:
- Lecture notes that cover all the topics we discuss with links to resources and services you can use.
- Additional videos designed to help you understand intellectual property, issues involved in telling true life stories, and contract law fundamentals you should have a good grounding in before you sell your story to anyone.
If you are currently working to capture, package, and sell your own true life experiences, or the life story or stories of others, this is an important event to attend. If you have a fictional story you want to tell, many of these techniques can also be used to capture and protect that as well.
