Jerome Courshon is one of today’s leading experts in independent film distribution. Through his lively lectures, master classes and private consulting services, he takes the guesswork out of how the motion picture distribution industry works. He teaches a course, "The Secrets to Distribution: Get Your Movie Distributed Now," to both neophyte and established producers and directors (more info at: http://www.Distribution.LA). He has written columns and articles on film distribution for many trade publications, and has been quoted in major business publications such as the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Times and MSN News. He also speaks at various film schools and film festivals both domestically and internationally, sharing his knowledge of the film distribution "game." A producer in his own right ("God, Sex & Apple Pie" distributed through Warner Bros.), he spent nearly a decade at HBO working in several capacities, most notably in Original Programming and HBO Films. He also has worked in Original Programming and Development for Comedy Central.
