|MPii believes that a stronger, healthier industry will result if the knowledge it usually takes decades to learn is more generally (and genuinely) shared with people who are just starting their careers, as well as people working to take their careers to the next level.
As a collaborative art form, filmmaking is a team sport, and our teams are built on the strength and professional preparedness of our collaborators. Therefore the work at MPii focuses on developing and sharing better industry standards and practices in all areas of the entertainment field, from story development, through finance and production, to final marketing and distribution, including film theory and criticism.
In order to be sure to continue to offer the “best of the best” industry practices available for career development and the MP/TV creative process, MPii actively conducts deep research, rigorous testing, and then compelling dissemination via workshops and trainings, and other career development programs, often hosted and/or in partnership with studios, networks, industry guilds, unions, trade associations, universities and leading industry organizations around the world.
Our primary areas of focus are researching and helping to improve industry best practices in:
Production Management and On-set Safety and Protocols
Diversity, Gender and Inclusion in the Entertainment Industry
Marketing, Promotion and Distribution of Entertainment
Legal and Financing of Entertainment Projects,
New Technology in Motion Picture Production and Distribution
