This session is part of the One Stop Business Workshop – Say Hello to series organized by CBC, CAVCO, and CMPA – originally livestreamed between June 10 – July 3, 2020. The goal of the series was to introduce new and emerging independent producers and content creators from traditionally underrepresented groups in the industry (women, persons with a disability, Black, Indigenous, People of Colour and LGBTQ2+) to topics related to the business and financing of TV, film and original digital content.
