LOS ANGELES, CA – February 17, 2011 – The Producers Guild of America (PGA) is proud to announce the seventh annual “Power of Diversity” Workshop. This highly successful program is designed to foster the important development of aspiring producers who bring diverse perspectives to television, film and non-traditional media. The annual workshop provides ten selected participants unique access to top industry talent for discussions and seminars about the producing craft. Participants are also supported by one-on-one mentoring sessions with members of the Guild’s Diversity Committee. Topics are tailored to the participating producers and their projects but subjects to be addressed include story development, pitching, packaging, financing, marketing, and new media.
Submissions for the PGA’s “Power of Diversity” Workshop opened on February 16 and will close on April 4 at 5 PM. The program runs from May through August. Applicants may be emerging creative voices or those well-established in their careers. Up to ten (10) participants will be selected to take part in the workshop at no charge.
