This class, taught by the executives and producers of Voyage Media, a company that has helped writers, producers, and directors package, polish and pitch over 1,100 high-profile entertainment projects in film, TV, and branded entertainment, offers the industry insiders' frank and honest instruction - stuff you'll never read in the trades or the how-to books-- on creating strategy and selling your work.
