It’s a seller’s market—if you know what you are doing. This course covers the fundamentals and the common mistakes made by beginners.

We’ll also discuss independently financing and producing your product, and the various avenues that are open to the aspiring screenwriter including using the blockchain, crypto and NFTs.
