Movies and Making Money

Lubin Dean and former NBC Television Network President and CEO of Viacom Entertainment Neil Braun talks business and feature films at a lecture hosted by the AEM Industry Network on April 17.

Everyone wants to know how movies are made and who gets the money. Think… theaters, pay for view, DVDs, TV, and you’ll get the feel for where movies make their money. Is there always money coming in? Who invests? Could it be you someday? What do those credits mean at the end of a movie—executive producer, producer, and co-producer? Lubin Dean Neil Braun was in the action and can answer these questions for you at The Business of Feature Films hosted by the Arts and Entertainment Management “Industry Network” on Wednesday, April 17, from 12:30 p.m. to 1:20 p.m. in Lecture Hall North on the NYC Campus. If you want to know about movies, this is a must see presentation!

Before coming to Pace’s Lubin School in July 2010, Braun served as president of the NBC Television Network, chairman and CEO of Viacom Entertainment, an internet and environmental entrepreneur, a fi­lm producer, and corporate attorney. He serves on the board of directors, audit, compensation, and governance committees of IMAX Corporation (NYSE), the board and ­finance committee of national anti-hunger organization Share Our Strength and is President of the Board of the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center. He has taught an MBA course in economic models of media and entertainment at the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania, where he earned his bachelor’s degree. He also has a JD from the University of Chicago Law School.
