Hollywood Literary Manager, Producer & Author Marilyn R. Atlas is conducting three exciting seminars for Berkshire Film and Media Collaborative in June

What’s Hot in Hollywood: The Current State of the Film and

Television Marketplace 

Thursday, June 3, 6–8 pm ET

Atlas leads a two-hour in-depth exploration of what studios and producers are buying right now, focusing on the types of projects being “green lit” by film and television studios. She’ll share tips, tricks, tools, and tactics for participants to reach out to production companies and get their screenplays “seen,” addressing how those who don’t live in LA or NYC can get in the game, how streaming services have shifted the playing field, and other crucial topics including film contests, leveraging YouTube, and securing representation.

Perfect Pitch: Creating a Powerful Treatment and

Pitch Deck/Look Book
