WOULD I BUY IT?
with Ken Kokin & Kat Corbett
Got an awesome idea that you want to test before spending months writing it?
Or maybe a finished script that is well-written but hasn't sold?
Then join us on March 23rd for our live online event 'Would I Buy It?' with Executive Producer KEN KOKIN. Ken is interested in helping writers find ideas that penetrate the market. He will listen to your pitch and offer high-level Hollywood feedback on its clarity and commercial viability.
The event will be moderated by KAT CORBETT, screenwriter and radio host of the long-running Locals Only show.
Ticket Price: $20. Availability is very limited.
Recently, Kokin was an executive heading Development and Production for Perfect World Pictures, USA. His responsibilities involved a historic half a billion-dollar slate deal with Universal Pictures. It included JURASSIC WORLD, US, DARKEST HOUR, GLASS, DOWNTON ABBY, BlacKkKlansman, and over 40 other pictures.
The films he has produced and directed have been recognized with over 50 awards from international and domestic festivals, including being a two-time Sundance winner. He has produced studio features, independent features, digital features, documentaries, reality TV, and international features (Chinese & Jordanian).
Kokin’s taste is varied, as evidenced by his producer credits from THE USUAL SUSPECTS to MORTDECAI (Johnny Depp) and THE WAY OF THE GUN (Benicio Del Toro, Ryan Phillippe).
Kokin made his directorial debut with BLOOD MOON which was written by Oscar-nominated Nicholas Kazan.

Eventually, Kat turned to screenwriting and earned finalist positions at the Nicholl Academy Fellowship, PAGE International, and Final Draft competitions as well as Second Rounder status at Austin Film Festival.
Raised in Boston, Kat managed to lose her thick accent to become a successful voice-over artist including the voice of the last four FIFA World Cups on Fox. Currently, she plays "Sortilège" the narrator for the INHERENT VICE podcast, Increment Vice.
Kat resides in Los Angeles where most days she’s just hoping to score space on the couch between three sleeping dogs.
