In the Trenches: Behind the Scenes at a Production Company

Ever wonder what the heck actually happens at a production/development company? Why does everything in the industry seem to move at the speed of molasses? What do they actually do with a script when they get it? Michael Onofri (Creative Executive, LD Entertainment) is here to pull back the curtain and reveal how his company searches for writers, how big his read pile is and much more!

Michael will go over general meetings and what you need to do to prepare for it and will highlight how this is different than other types of pitching. Michael has a unique perspective as in addition to being a Creative Exec at LD Entertainment, he’s also a writer with Roadmap!
