How to Make Art, Pay the Rent, and Survive Piracy

Mar 13, 2017

12:30pm – 1:30pm CT

Very few artists – be they musicians, filmmakers, showrunners, photographers, or novelists – aspire to create one piece of art, release it out into the world, and call it a day. Most artists view each and every project as one step in a life-long journey of creative expression – and hope to actually make a living from their art.

For that reason, creativity and the protection of creative works are inextricably connected. In this panel, established filmmakers and showrunners will talk to you about building a career in the arts by determining how your works are distributed.
