Introduction to Media Distribution offers a clear, direct and comprehensive overview of the entire film, television and new media distribution business, valuable to both students and professionals. In this book, author Scott Kirkpatrick draws from over a decade of personal experience in the distribution arena to explore what fuels the distribution process, and explains in real-world terms how the business works from beginning to end—not merely what happens to a film or television series after a distributor acquires it, but how distributors develop, pre-sell and broker deals on content before it even exists. Kirkpatrick covers deal structures, release strategies, acquisition approaches, rights sales, international co-productions, tax credits, audience research, global regulatory boards, and even ‘behind closed doors’ monetization practices. The book offers: A straightforward, clear and insightful approach to understanding the fundamental basics of how the global distribution marketplace works, and how distribution companies actually operate and create the content they need; An insider’s analysis of all levels of the business with an emphasis on the independent scene, the root from where development in the industry grows; A comprehensive overview of how film and television markets and festivals work, and how buyers and sellers actually broker deals in the field; Detailed explanations of how each media right is defined and windowed to maximize potential revenue; A detailed overview of several major international territories, and how each operates within the context of the global media business; Guidance and advice from an industry expert on how one can initiate their professional career in the entertainment industry, applicable to individuals in all roles; A robust appendix containing in-depth studies of legal definitions, material delivery requirements, territory-by-territory financial projections, and more. An accompanying eResource offers template contracts, sample agreements, and further resources for download.

Young adults are actively looking for anything that connects them with the changes happening in their lives, and the books discussed throughout Literature for Young Adults have the potential to make that connection and motivate them to read. It explores a great variety of works, genres, and formats, but it places special emphasis on contemporary works whose nontraditional themes, protagonists, and literary conventions make them well suited to young adult readers. It also looks at the ways in which contemporary readers access and share the works they're reading, and it shows teachers ways to incorporate nontraditional ways of accessing and sharing books throughout their literature programs. In addition to traditional genre chapters, Literature for Young Adults includes chapters on literary nonfiction; poetry, short stories, and drama; cover art, picture books, illustrated literature, and graphic novels; and film. It recognizes that, while films can be used to complement print literature, they are also a literacy format in their own right-and one that young adults are particularly familiar and comfortable with. The book's discussion of literary language--including traditional elements as well as metafictive terms--enables readers to share in a literary conversation with their students (and others) when communicating about books. It will help readers teach young adults the language they need to articulate their responses to the books they are reading.

The practical and legal aspects of writing a business plan for a film venture can be daunting to navigate without a firm grasp of know-how. With this in mind, John W. Cones's Business Plans for Filmmakers arms independent movie-makers and students with everything they need to successfully tackle the confusing intersection of law, business, and art when creating a business plan for a movie. This pragmatic volume offers plenty of examples and strategies for success, sharing straightforward insight into some of the toughest challenges independent filmmakers face when encountering these documents. With simple yet thorough detail and clarity, Cones outlines the legal requirements affecting movie proposals, including ways to evaluate the necessity for a business plan or a securities disclosure document, as well as the legal definition of "an active investor." Also addressed are the numerous subjects filmmakers and students must consider before a film offering, including the efficacy of a business plan to fund the development, production, and distribution phases of a film; common elements of fraud of which fledgling filmmakers should beware; the intricacies of revenue sharing; and how to render financial projections. Cones also imparts useful distinctions between such industry terms as "company financing" versus "project financing," along with many others. This bookalso includes in-depth guidance through the murky paths of investor analysis and key strategies to find and attract parties interested in financing film. Drawing upon his many years as a securities and entertainment attorney, and his experiences advising independent film producers, Cones offers the tools necessary not only to understand investors' motivations but also to use that knowledge to the filmmaker's advantage. Also provided are perceptive studies of the investment vehicles commonly used in business plans seeking investors, with analysis of each method's pros and cons. Throughout the volume, Cones uses sample plans to offer a real-world grasp of the intricacies of the business. In the business of this art, knowledge is power. Business Plans for Filmmakers dispels the myths and misinformation circulating among filmmakers to provide accurate and useful advice.

• 28 тижнів у топі бестселерів The New York Times • Книжка року за рейтингами Amazon, The Economist і Bloomberg 2010 року про новий роман письменника та фінансового журналіста Майкла Льюїса говорила вся Америка. Його «Велику гру на пониження» у потертій обкладинці можна було побачити на автобусній зупинці, у вагоні підземки чи на столику у ресторані швидкого харчування. Бо у кожного американця був знайомий без постійної роботи і грошей, який отримав великий іпотечний кредит. Будинки дорожчали, відсотки по кредитам падали… Інвестиційні банки Уолл-стрит стали схожими на казино. Та це казино помилилось, коли розраховувало свої шанси на виграш. Велика мильна бульбашка мала луснути. Фінансова піраміда мала обвалитися, поховавши під собою віру американців у міць долара... Було досить багато тих, хто передбачав цю катастрофу. Але була і жменька тих, хто ризикнув і, коли світ летів у прірву фінансової кризи, зумів на ній заробити. Великий песиміст і дивак з Уолл-стрит, якого колеги звикли вважали невдахою. Лікар із синдромом Аспергера, якого більше за діагнози вабили колонки цифр фінансової аналітики. Двоє друзів, що заснували інвестиційну компанію у гаражі біля будинку. Вони, а не великі боси з Уолл-стрит зуміли побачити проблему під незвичайним кутом. Поставили на програш. І стали переможцями. Книга «Гра на пониження» отримала звання «Книжка року» в десятках авторитетних рейтингів, а екранізація за участю Бреда Пітта, Раяна Гослінга і Крістіана Бейла номінувався на «Золотий глобус» і «Оскар».
