He who would learn to fly one day must first learn to stand and walk and run and climb and dance; one cannot fly into flying.Friedrich Nietzsche
Sometimes it’s about sticking to your guns, and more often it’s about compromise. Either way, negotiation is at the core of what the executive producer brings to a film and entertainment project. In developing his considerable skills in the industry, Kewku has mastered the art of effective negotiations throughout a career founded on getting things done. He can cut the deal while building and sustaining the important relationships on which all agreements are founded.
For investors, negotiating a fair rate of return is weighed by the filmmaker’s need for adequate funding, flexibility, and creative autonomy. These contrasting imperatives can be difficult to balance, and a skilled negotiator can make or break a promising project. This is where Kweku’s talent for visionary thinking comes to the fore, seeing all sides of the equation, forging a professional bond, and crafting a deal that satisfies competing interests.
