IT'S ALL ABOUT THE CONTENT: Finding & Licensing Sports Footage
Licensing sports content is one of the most challenging aspects in the industry.  The professional leagues have always been known to be pricey -- how can we work better with these agencies?  Who owns the copyright for UGC shot at an NBA, NFL, MLB or NHL game?  What sort of restrictions do the leagues have in licensing certain content or particular players?

DOCUMENTING GREAT AMERICANS: R.F.K. & Mister Rogers
Meet the people behind the two most critically-acclaimed  documentaries of the year, both centered around the lives of two extraordinarily inspiring Americans.  Both were famous and controversial figures in their own ways.  They both made their marks by way of the media, inspiring goodness and charity to our fellow man.  One was mocked and criticized severely for his views; the other was killed. They are both memorialized in these two amazing films, “Bobby Kennedy for President” (Netflix) and “Won’t You Be My Neighbor” (Focus Features).
