Anyone who is trying to "make it" as a creator usually reaches a point where they need to get repped. But what does that even mean? How do you find representation? Where do you start?

As you’re trying to break into the entertainment industry, how do you decide when to bring on a talent agent and a manager? What are the key elements to finding the collaborators that will represent you as your career progresses? Who can you trust and turn to when there are many important decisions to be made?

Sundance Co//ab wants to help answer these questions in its upcoming seminar, "How to Find Representation for Writers & Directors with The Hollywood Reporter’s Rebecca Sun."

This is a three-hour masterclass where you can learn when to seek representation, what the key roles are you need to fill, and other essential information you need before building your team.

Other topics will include (via Sundance Co//ab):

  • What agents and managers do and don’t, how to find them, and what to expect from them
  • How managers, agents, and lawyers work together to support your career and how to make yourself attractive to the best possible team
  • What kind of research to do when you are seeking representation, identifying legal restrictions and red flags
  • When to seek legal representation and advice, and what is the key information you need to know before closing a deal
  • The initial steps to build a representation plan that will help you familiarize the industry with your work

The Hollywood Reporter’s Rebecca Sun will moderate conversations with managers Melissa Breaux and Adam Marshall from Management 360, literary agent Christina Chou from CAA, and entertainment attorney Elsa Ramo.

The class takes place Tuesday, Dec. 14, 2021, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. (PST).

Sundance Co//ab classes are open and free of charge to all members of the site as a live event, and accessible to all members for 48 hours.
