Do you need business partners?

•Do I need partners?
One rule that I’ve used is that if someone is critical to helping me achieve the goals that I have set for the company, offer them some form of equity. If not, make them an employee (possibly a highly paid employee), if justified.

•Goals
Make sure you and your partner have the same goals. It is very important.

•Who’s going to do what?

While the partners will most likely wear multiple hats at the start, there should be a delineation of responsibilities with assigned roles that play to each individual’s strengths.

•How will we resolve conflicts?

Air them out.

I think that having agreements in writing lets everyone involved have a clear understanding of what is being proposed. Put signatures down and be willing to revisit the operating agreement as required.

•How will we dissolve the partnership?

Hope that it never gets to this point, but be prepared just in case.
While no one goes into a partnership with the intent of ending it prematurely, life events or a change in strategy may mean one or more partners want out.

Read more here in detail if you are seriously thinking about going into business. For the industry maybe you just want to contract people to assist with your production or work with a production team. This seems easier to me this way you deal with you and the main few partners you work with. Keep in mind its your business so be cautious and take your time with any deal or contract you commit to.

Where do movies originate from

Film affects many lives in different ways. The film industry can control as much of its success because people try to relate to the storyline and see themselves in the storyline or a specific characters. Audience often choose a movie because they want it to make them feel a certain way. Since we as people are easily persuaded by media, we’re safe to explore many situations that might be impossible or in some cases too overwhelming to face in the real world. Is  this how Reality shows became so popular? Are people escaping their own reality through film or looking for help in their own situations?

“In some cases therapist are using movies as a therapeutic tool to help their clients to express their feelings.” I find this statement interesting as I an employee at Mickira Productions is studying Sociology now in school. Some say they are finding that it is beneficial for some individuals that struggle with the ability to communicate their emotions and concerns. This technique is called Cinema Therapy or Movie Therapy. Many should know its a tool for help but not an answer to the patients issues.

I am sure many of us find it interesting how familiar some of these scripts and characters are to our own family. How often have you said “I could write a movie about our family?” Where do you think movies originate from?Hmm…p

What are some of your favorite family movies?
