The Entertainment Industries Council is proud to announce our 2013 Summer First Draft Creative Briefing Series. As you may already know, health and social issues have many implications. Perhaps the greatest ramifications are those they can have on storytelling for TV and movies.These briefings serve to enhance the creative process by providing useful information to the creative community about the health and social issues that affect our world today and meeting the needs of the entertainment industry when it comes to accurately depicting these prevalent issues to your audiences.

Location: SAG-AFTRA Cagney Room
Presented in partnership with SAG-AFTRA Military Personnel
and Families Support Committee
and the
Producers Guild of America

  • Hear real stories from our panelists about their experiences related to Veteran homelessness, mental health, reintegration and employment. Discover details that will assist in the creation of accurate and compelling characters and storylines that will engage your audience.

Understanding Mental Health Recovery for Storytellers
August 8, 2013, 9-11 AM
Location: Universal Studios Hollywood
  • This briefing will explore the principles of recovery as it relates to diagnosed mental illness with a focus on reducing stigma and discrimination as it relates to these illnesses. Our panelists will draw from personal experiences to assist in the creation of storylines that can reduce stigma and discrimination while amping up character development and enhancing storytelling.
At each briefing, our expert panel will be available to answer questions and provide shows and movies with fodder for their creative endeavors to address these issues.

Whether your production is a police or procedural, medical, legal, science fiction, family or domestic drama, or a comedy about parenthood, work situations or growing up, there should be something here for them in preparation for movies or potential episodes for the coming season.

I’m asking you to request that your shows each send a representative to each of these briefings to seek out the new colors they may need to expand their creative palettes for storytelling and accuracy. If you are unable to attend our briefings or are looking for information on other topics we have a variety of alternative options including our First Draft on the Menu luncheon briefings that can be tailored to the needs of your team. Click here for a list of some of the topics we cover.

Thank you for your continued support and encouragement.
