Karen Kaufman Wilson, one of our VIP mentors, has created REEL TAKE, a weekly subscription newsletter which covers excerpts from entertainment news including box office information, scripts bought/sold, television ratings, pilot pickups, executive moves, job opportunities and more. In a nutshell, the newsletter is a translation or the cliff notes of the daily trades. Having taught her seminar, HOW TO GET AND SUCCEED IN YOUR FIRST FILM JOB across the country, Karen quickly realized that many of her students didn't read the trades. Primarily, because the trades were confusing, overwhelming and expensive. One of her students described it as "jumble of names".
REEL TAKE is the perfect alternative to the trades. Karen breaks down the news in simple terms so it can be used help further your career. Her mantra is simple: knowledge is power. So for the very low price of $9.99/month with a two-week free trial period, you can equip yourself with pertinent, effective "inside" information. Please visit her website, www.firstfilmjob.com, sign up and tell your friends. Also, coming soon, Karen will be doing a First Film Job seminar for our IP members. First Film Job offers a thorough and complete course - full of valuable "inside information" on obtaining your first job in the film business. What's more, First Film Job will not only assist you in getting that first job, but teach you industry-tested strategies that will help you reach your long-term career goals.REEL PRODUCTION CALENDER: ORDER HERE
