The Entrepreneurial Free Agent and Dejobbed Small Business R&D Lab
In issue #7 of Sohodojo's Rants and Raves newsletter, we 'deconstructed' Malone and Laubacher's Harvard Business Review article, "The Dawn of the E-Lance Economy". In our discussion ,we highlighted the networkization of the Hollywood film industry as a mature model of how elastic webs of free agents and nanocorps will operate as we charge forward into the 21st century.
Mark Litwak is an authority on the entertainment industry. He is a practicing entertainment law attorney and a professor at the University of West Los Angeles. Among his published works, the two we highlight here are classics for those interested in the fine-grained details of Hollywood .
Contracts for the Film and Television Industry, 2nd Expanded Edition
Dealmaking in the Film and Television Industry and Contracts for the Film and Television Industry are timely and insightful resources for anyone envisioning a nanocorp or free agent workstyle.
While both are crammed with insightful details of how the entertainment network economy works, the Dealmaking... book has an edge for those seeking for an insider's look into how the film and television industry works. The Contracts book is much more of a 'boilerplate' resource with detailed examples and explainations of how the entertainment industry dots its "i"s and crosses its "t"s to connect together independent businesses and form them into temporary companies.
