Agents: How They Help Develop, Pitch and Manage Projects for the Streamers. Webinar with Julie Link

A MIPDOC highlight was my MEET THE EXPERT session with Cologne-based Julie Link.

Julie is Co-Founder + Co-CEO of GLISK-Germany.

We later recorded this webinar that initially covered her career path from Texas to LA to Germany.

We then dug deep into her experience concerning the role of agents, comparing US and European industry practices.

Julie focused her analysis on the “Top 3 D’s” for Producers who want to work with agents: Data, Driving the Business, and Dealmaking.
