INSTRUCTOR: TROY DEVOLLD
The author of REALITY TV gives you a no-holds-barred, hard look at how the Hollywood Notes process works. Any time you submit a script, edit or cut of your show, expect the network execs at your production company and network to give you "notes" about "how to improve" your show. This class addresses the question of notes and how to give and take them gracefully along the road to completing projects, the spirit of collaboration, and how to avoid seeing creative input or guidance as an adversarial gesture.
