PROGRAM DETAILS

PRIVATE COACHING (1-on-1 with Randy Becker)
 
 
CRAFT YOUR ACTION PLAN - One-on-one coaching to turn your goals into a clear and specific ACTION PLAN, including WHO to build relationships with, WHAT to bring to the marketplace and HOW to define success over the course of our time together.

We look for the intersection of your ‘genius’, your goals and the specific demands of the marketplace you plan to penetrate. We agree on what “success” means, both in the short term and long term, then clarify the overall plan that will get you there.
 
SCRIPT & PROJECT DEVELOPMENT - This is an in-depth development session; private coaching where we get specific about what works and what is challenging about the project you will be working on.  

Randy Becker will do the analysis himself, using his years of experience as an award-winning artist, a professional writers coach, a rep for writers & filmmakers and as a producer where his primary function was to get material in shape to present to the marketplace. Randy has helped develop and/or set up projects at Paramount, Fox Searchlight, Brad Pitt’s Plan B, FX, HBO, Showtime, CBS, Lifetime and more. He has helped raise independent capital for films ranging from micro-budgets to $15million and even helped develop and
sell novels to elite publishers like Harper-Collins.  He recently helped finance and produce a TV series using corporate sponsors as the sole funding source.  
 
Most importantly, Randy is actively in the marketplace, giving him hands-on knowledge of what works, what doesn't and for which players in the industry this may or may not apply.
 
BUILD YOUR NETWORK  – You will use our system for building THE RIGHT industry relationships, effectively transforming you from an artist with hat-in-hand ("please give me a job") to a colleague with something of great value to share. We will provide specific guidance, you will have to dive into the industry with bravery and passion.
 
FIND YOUR FUNDING - Craft your tailor-made plan for finding the money, speaking effectively to the money, spending the money and providing a RETURN worth paying for. 
 
ADDITIONAL PRIVATE COACHING SESSIONS  – One-on-one sessions that focus on both the creative AND the business side of your equation.  Get your work ‘market-ready’ and clarify the path for getting it to the people who matter most.

MEET YOUR PROGRAM HOST

 
RANDY BECKER (CEO of NexTV Entertainment)
"My name is Randy Becker. I founded NexTV Entertainment to give artists a REAL chance to get their voices heard in the entertainment industry and the world. Creating great material is essential...but not enough. Understanding and embracing the BUSINESS is vital, as well.  But to succeed, you must find the intersection of your goals, your unique genius, and what your 'target' needs.  We help talented screenwriters, filmmakers, actors, authors, entrepreneurs and entertainment professionals break through...on their own terms." 
 
I have succeeded on both sides of the camera; both sides of the paycheck. I built a career as an actor, starring on Broadway, TV and Film, THEN became a Producer, Literary Rep and successful Business Owner in the entertainment industry.
 
I’ve shared clients with top agencies (CAA, ICM, Gersh), I’ve set up TV, Film and Web Content all around town and I’ve helped artists and entertainment professionals get work at the studios, networks, publishing companies, and the indie world.
 
But it wasn't always easy. I started with no connections and no clue how to get my career on track. I waited on tables, borrowed money from family members, put in countless hours of work only to see others get the credit.
 
THE YEAR MY SON WAS BORN, I HAD 4 FULLY-FINANCED FILMS FALL APART.
 
That's when I woke up and completely changed my approach.  
 
I am excited to share with you the key elements that have allowed me to support my family, produce work I am truly proud of and build a life in this great industry."
