Frame Forward

Beyond the Screenplay—Navigating Entertainment’s New Horizons

Frame Forward Horizontal.jpg

In a post-strike and post-pandemic world, understanding the shifts in the entertainment industry is not just useful—it's powerful. At Story Summit, we embrace the axiom that information is power. Our goal through this year-long program is to arm you with positive understanding, turning insights into actions that can elevate your screenplay from concept to production.

 

Frame Forward is a pioneering initiative from Story Summit +, offering direct access to Hollywood's frontline professionals—agents, producers, and industry leaders. Every month, these insiders will share their expertise live, providing real-time guidance and exclusive insights.

 

Join us for engaging discussions with a diverse lineup of Hollywood’s finest, who are eager to help you navigate the bustling new horizons of entertainment. The path to success in film and television is as varied as the scripts you write—there isn't just one "script" for success. Frame Forward will explore the myriad ways to bring your project to life, from pitch to premiere.

Lucchesi and Dobrofsky—Old Guard and New Guard on Hollywood’s Shifting Landscape

In the new normal, there is no single way to get your screenplay produced. We are excited to be jump starting the new Story Summit + monthly series on the entertainment industry, Frame Forward: Beyond the Screenplay—Navigating Entertainment’s New Horizons with the old guard and new guard of Hollywood. Our first session on May 13 will surely prove to be an informative and lively event.

 

In the next twelve months of the series, we will feature top agents, managers, streamers, and studio execs who will share their experiences in the shifting landscape of Hollywood and help answer the question: How do I get it done? These events with celebrity speakers will be workshop based.

 

With Gary Lucchesi you won't find a more experienced movie maker. Gary's four decades of service to storytelling include roles as an agent at William Morris, where he discovered superstars like Kevin Costner; as production president of Paramount Pictures; as president of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Really Useful Company; and as president and producer of Lakeshore Entertainment. At Lakeshore, he oversaw the production of over one hundred movies, including Million Dollar Baby, for which he served as executive producer and which won the Academy Award for Best Picture.

 

At 32, Spyder Dobrofsky, has written seven produced screenplays. He has even written in the popular Christmas genre including The Housewives of the North Pole for MPCA and Peacock. Spyder just directed his first independent picture which he also produced. With an energy and can-do attitude that is infectious, Spyder will explain how the younger generation is getting their screenplays before decision makers and getting them produced. Is it different than the old guard way?

 

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from the old guard and new guard of Hollywood as they discuss bridging the generational gap in filmmaking.
