If you've got talent and skills, why limit yourself in one area? Many of us work exclusively in theater, but there may be opportunities awaiting in other media, including film, television and the burgeoning world of new media. We'll talk about career fluidity, and how to adapt what you do from one medium to another. We will explore the similarities and differences, the comparative costs of producing each, the differences in how you should approach investors, and how to identify if a property itself is adaptable to a different medium and what adjustments might need to be made.
Doors open at 7:00pm for networking and refreshments, roundtable introductions of everyone in the room will start at 7:30pm - come prepared with your best one-minute summary of who you are, and what you need. Free for TRU members; $12 for non-members. (Or $10 in advance - see ticketing upper left.) Please call at least a day in advance (or much sooner) for reservations: 212/714-7628; or e-mail TRUStaff1@gmail.com
