Description

Hollywood is a tough place to break into and we take apart the exploitation that is par for the course in show business--from sexism, to idea stealing, and even exploiting interns--in this conversation with entertainment lawyer Nicole Page. With “bro-culture” the norm in the studio system, are there opportunities for women and people that aren’t insiders? What should aspiring filmmakers do to make sure they secure their stories legally and protect their ideas from being stolen? What does an agent really do for you? We look at the business of Hollywood and follow the money in this Media Mayhem interview, hosted by Allison Hope Weiner.
