VENUE: The Made in NY Media Center Theater
ADDRESS: 30 John Street, Brooklyn, NY 11201, USA
Got that Big Meeting coming up? Maybe you’re taking part in IFP’s Independent Film Week Project Forum, or the Conference’s Meet the Decision Makers? Or, you’re headed out to pitch your script, your series, your content app – whatever it is, are you prepared?
Experienced producers Amy Hobby & Anne Hubbell, founders of Tangerine Entertainment, will give you the tools you need to prepare for – and make a success of – a high stakes meeting. Get coaching on going in prepared: researching the people you are meeting, presenting yourself, and getting your team in sync; handle the details (what to wear?!); and to take control of the room, engage with positive feedback – and recover from a negative remark. Leave this 90-minute workshop with the confidence you need to launch your project, and take on your meetings like a boss.
Amy Hobby co-founded Tangerine Entertainment with business partner Anne Hubbell to produce and build community for films with female directors and exceptional roles for women. She has been producing award-winning theatrical films for 20 years. Her films have been released by Sony, Lion’s Gate, HBO, Miramax, Sony Pictures Classics, IFC, Magnolia and more. Hobby has had 7 films premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, including jury prize-winner Secretary starring Maggie Gyllenhaal (for which she was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award). Very recent credits include: Love, Marilyn (HBO 2014) directed by Liz Garbus; and Lucky Them (IFC 2014) starring Toni Collette. She produced four features in 2014, including What Happened Miss Simone?, also directed by Garbus, which is available on Netflix now.
