Because a bunch of you missed the Producing 101 teleseminar.
One of my bloggin’ missions this year was to give you what you want.
So back in the frigid month of January (remember that nonsense?) I wrote a blog asking you specifically “what your problem was.” I wanted you to tell me what you wanted in posts, seminars, and more. And I’d adjust my New Year’s resolutions to try and deliver.
I got a bunch of comments, and even more emails telling me very specifically what you were looking to learn about in 2014. I created a punch list of all those things that you asked for and have slowly been working my way through ’em. As you can imagine, more info and tips on how to raise money for your shows or theaters was at the top of the list, which is why I created and released Raise It (which I’m proud to say has gotten some pretty awesome feedback – read the testimonials here.)
Surprisingly, and this is why it’s always important to ask your readers/audience what you can do for ’em, the other subject you wanted discussed was much simpler. You wanted to know how to start. Or more specifically, you wanted to know how to get started the right way with Producing Broadway shows, Off Broadway shows, and any type of show. That’s why I developed Producing 101: The Three Fundamentals of Theater Producing, which I taught in my first teleseminar back in April.
And I have to say, I never thought speaking into a microphone in my office with a whole bunch of people listening in from all over the world could ever be so much fun. But it was awesome. In addition to me dissecting my system for a proper foundation in Theater Producing, I also took questions from people as close as New Jersey and as far away as Tokyo.
Since then, a lot of folks have asked me when I am doing it again.
The answer is? I’m not.
With It’s Only A Play coming up, as well as Gettin’ The Band Back Together, Somewhere in Time and a couple of projects I haven’t even told you about (including my wedding which is in . . . gulp . . . 3 weeks!), it’s just hard to find the time. When I broke that news to a few of the folks that inquired, they asked if there was any way that they could get their hands on the material.
And well, sometimes I feel like the genie in Aladdin – if you ask for something, I feel like I have to give it to you – (unless it’s a new Porsche so please don’t email me for that!).
So, if you missed the Producing 101 Teleseminar, or if you have never even heard of the teleseminar, but are interested in learning about the three fundamentals of theater producing, click here. I’ve made the recordings available, along with a text-book-like transcript, tips on how I get my shows off the ground, and some other fun stuff. It’s the perfect starter course if you are interested in producing. Or you’ve been at it for awhile and things haven’t taken off yet, well, as Mr. Chase, my Basketball teacher in high school used to say, get back to the fundamentals.
