The Movie Business Book

The streaming era is upon us. As major releases made their way online instead of movie theatres, studios have had to rethink the way they make offers. Major news developments have continued to transform the way profitability is calculated and, in turn, the way deals are made.

Dan Scharf, head of global business affairs for Amazon Studios, joins hosts Ilan Haimoff (GHJ Profit Participation Services Leader) and Jason Squire (Professor Emeritus at USC School of Cinematic Arts and editor of The Movie Business Book Fourth Edition) on this episode of the “Movie Business Podcast” for a discussion about streaming deals.

Learn about the key differences between traditional theatrical and television and new streaming deals, how streaming formulas are used to calculate success and how much influence Amazon has on its streaming content.
