OBJECTIVES:
In this assignment, students will evaluate the types of supporting content needed for a sales presentation by an agent on behalf of their chosen piece of creative content.
Students will analyze and discuss what makes a good press kit, book proposal, film treatment, television treatment, or game treatment.
INSTRUCTIONS:
Initial Post (75%) – DUE WEDNESDAY
Project Specifications
Last week, we learned the importance of drafting an effective query letter. In the letter, we introduced ourselves or our client and gave the agent a brief overview of our creative content. This letter helps the agent determine whether or not he or she can take us on as a client and if a market exists for the sale of our material. If interested, the agent will then request more specific information from us about the content, such as a proposal, treatment, or press kit. This additional material will help the agent finalize a decision and ultimately put together a sales package for potential publishers.
Depending on the creative content you’ve chosen, this week you will be putting together either a book proposal, a press kit, a film treatment, a television treatment, or a game treatment (see Project Two for details). In preparation for this assignment, please answer the following question for this week’s post: What makes a good book proposal, press kit, film treatment, television treatment, or game treatment?
Please refer to the sample templates provided in the appendix of the textbook, as well as outside resources, on how to create and optimize these materials. Focus on your specific content (for example, if you selected music, talk about what goes into making an effective press kit). In addition to the textbook, if you find helpful resources outside of class, be sure to discuss and cite them appropriately.

Questions
Please refrain from answering questions in a manner that compartmentalizes multi-part answers. Write your response in a manner that reads like a conversation, one that exhibits both your conversational tone and a writing style that displays a command of the topic(s) at hand. Use references accordingly and do so in a manner that supports your point(s). 
1. Moonlight (2018) is a phenomenal movie that tackled the issues of sexual identity, masculinity, and poverty. Through three different stages of Chiron’s life, we see his struggles. We see the carnage of poverty, addiction and hopelessness ensnare his life. The movie serves as a constant reminder of the mask we all wear, to hide who we are, from the world and the people we love. The lessons we learn in school play a vital role in our development. Chiron’s experience with school was characterized by constant harassment. Juan, whose character is played by Mahershala Ali, is the fatherly figure that is missing in Chiron’s life. A) How important are positive reinforcements in the life of someone struggling with their sexual orientation? B) How can we make the environment safer in school for all students, especially LGBT students? 
2. Brokeback Mountain (2007) has been described as “a gay cowboy movie,” which is a cruel simplification. It is the story of a time and place where two men are forced to deny the only great passion either one will ever feel. Their tragedy is universal. It could be about two women, or lovers from different religious or ethnic groups — any ‘forbidden’ love.” A) What did you take away from this film about the essential nature of people, no matter what their gender or color orientation? B) Why does Jack hold Brokeback Mountain responsible for their passion? What was it about that summer that couldn’t be repeated? C) How important is it that Joe Aguirre confronts Jack about their homosexuality instead of Ennis? How would Ennis have reacted if it did?
3. Luca Guadagnino’s films are all about the transformative power of nature—the way it allows our true selves to shine through and inspires us to pursue our hidden passions. Never has this been more true than in Call Me By Your Name (2017), a lush and vibrant masterpiece about first love set amid the warm, sunny skies, gentle breezes and charming, tree-lined roads of northern Italy. A) What is the message of Call Me By Your Name? B) Did Oliver really love Elio?
4. It wasn’t until the late ’60s that films with gay-related themes even had a chance of making it into a movie theater. The “X” rating were handed out if films had any type of “homosexual” context, no matter how subtle. Nowadays, audiences can enjoy films that were once given suppressible ratings and kept from theaters merely because a character in the film is gay. Subsequently, filmmakers can delve deeper and introduce audiences to more complex LGBT issues. The subtleties of themes in these films and the Directors’ ability to bend genres in a manner that blurs the lines of its intended audience, makes films like these the perfect conduit for delivering messages of empathy, love, and hope. The themes and genre of these films are significant to the narrative and overall representation of its characters. A) What is the significance of moonlight in the Moonlight (2018)? How does it play into the film’s existing theme of identity? B) How does the story of Brokeback Mountain fit in the western genre? Is it even a western to begin with? Why or why not? C) What is the role of nature in Call Me By Your Name? D) How does the environment play a role in all three movies?
5. In all three films, socioeconomic status made some protagonists’ circumstances difficult to overcome, while others were able to navigate society much more nimbly due to race, status, and affluence. A) Does one’s socioeconomic status further complicate one’s sexual identity? B) Identify one (1) or more moments in each film that exhibits such disparity that it affects a protagonist’s lifestyle and inability to live their life freely. C) How can we remedy this situation?

Objectives:
Based on your chosen creative content, research an appropriate literary, songwriting, film sales or media agent (or, in the case of games, a developer).
Write an effective query or pitch letter to the agent.  In the letter, solicit your creative content in an effort to secure a traditional publishing deal with the agent’s assistance.
This week, you will study why an agent is needed for a traditional publishing deal, how to find an appropriate agent, how to write an effective query letter, and what terms are industry standard for agent and publishing contracts.
As you conduct your research and planning, consider the following:
What type of creative content do you have?
Why should you avoid looking for talent and booking agents when soliciting creative content for publishing deals?
What is the most appropriate type of agent for your particular content?
Where might you find agent directories or listings?
Instructions:
1. Under the traditional publishing model, agents shop creative content to publishing houses, production companies, and labels. Assume the role of writer (author, composer, screenplay writer, etc.) or manager of creative talent. Determine what type of real or hypothetical creative content you or your client intends to solicit (book, music, TV, film, or game). In the letter, identify your creative content and your role as creator or manager.
2. Using industry sources, locate an appropriate agent to shop your work. Consider sources such as The Writer’s Guide to the Marketplace, orThe Songwriter’s Guide to the Market; trade journals and publications such as The Hollywood Reporter, Billboard Magazine, Publisher’s Weekly, etc.; websites such as the Writer’s Guild of America, The Songwriter’s Guild of America, The Screenwriter’s Guild, etc. As always, be sure to provide citations for each of your sources. REMEMBER: You are NOT looking for a talent or booking agent, because you are not trying to get a performing gig. Rather, you are trying to shop creative content for a publishing deal, and talent/booking agents will rarely provide this service. You must look for a very specific type of agent—literary, songwriting, media, film sales, or developer—who specializes in shopping creative content for publishing deals. Please do not select the William Morris Agency, CAA Talent Agency, or other similar companies that specialize in talent and booking deals. Also, unless a company specifically says that it will accept unsolicited material, please do not attempt to shop the content directly to a publisher, production company, or record label.
3. Draft a standard query letter to the agent. Use a traditional business (block paragraph) letter format: single-spaced, left-justified, with a double-space in between paragraphs.(Please see the Query Letter Example.) Discuss the project and your credentials in a brief, engaging manner. The letter should not be longer than one page. Do not use a memo or email format for this assignment.
4. At the bottom of the letter or on a separate page, list the citations for all sources used to locate the agent, including applicable website URL addresses. For this assignment you will use the Full Sail University library to access EBSCOhost, Lexis-Nexis, trade journals or other available library resources to conduct research.
Deliverable:
A complete, one-page query letter using traditional business format, with sources/ citations included.

Essay question: Is unethical conduct an inevitable and unavoidable consequence o

Essay question: Is unethical conduct an inevitable and unavoidable consequence of the commercial pursuit of profit and audiences? Discuss this question, teasing out the commercial versus ethical issues, and elaborate on your response through the use of current media examples in one area of media practice.
The essay should demonstrate engagement with the unit content, the set readings and texts, as well as show evidence of wider scholarly research. Essays must follow proper scholarly formatting and referencing in order to avoid penalties. See the MECO Style Guide for students for further detail on academic referencing. This course is ostensibly based on Australian debates and references/examples should be made to current Australian media. Laws, codes, regulations and guidelines should be primarily Australian. Of course, what has happened in other jurisdictions (cases, legislation, reform recommendations), may also be important as a comparison. A good example will illuminate the concerns and provide depth. Serial examples should not be used to replace a coherent argument. Recent media examples (published in the last 12 months) should be used in a way that substantially enhances & illustrates your argument. All references, material and examples must be originally in English (translations by students are not accepted). All references using actual quotes, paraphrase, or specific arguments, should employ page numbers.
The essays will be assessed primarily according to response to the question; engagement with course concepts, clarity of expression; structure and strength of argument; use of academic and media texts to support your argument; use of course materials as well as independent research/reading.  In addition, the following will be taken into account:
•    Evidence of understanding of the chosen topic.  Clearly identifies relevant ethical, legal issues. Clearly identifies, applies appropriate ethical/legal frameworks.
•    Engagement with relevant course material, resources and concepts
•    Wider research and reading to support logical argument, appropriate use of relevant, credible media and academic texts.
•    Use of relevant, current media example(s) to illustrate analysis.
•    Originality of thought and approach beyond summarizing the material.
•    Presentation, clarity of expression; appropriate level of academic writing referencing & academic standards; adheres to word limit, pagination, formatting requirements; demonstrates appropriate language and literacy; proof read for spelling & grammar; compliance
