We’re thrilled to be hosting manager/producer Lisa Callamaro’s intensive one-day seminar, “The Business of ‘The Biz,’” which teaches writers, writers/producers, indie producers or anyone interested in developing film or television projects the tools they'll need to further their IP and empower their career.
Lisa Callamaro has been an advocate and protector of writers in publishing and film for over 25 years, first as an agent and now a manager/producer with her company STORY & VOICE. She offers this workshop in the hopes of developing a community of collaborators — empowered and prepared to navigate the future of the industry.
