Pitching: The Art of the Game

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Many screenwriters dream about the mythical circumstance of being trapped in an elevator with a studio executive just waiting to hear a pitch for their next film. (Not to mention, next to that music, anything will sound good!) But in case life doesn’t serendipitously drop you onto the pitching mound, how do you even get a pitch meeting? And once you’re in the game, what are some tips to represent your story accurately in an artful, brief, and appetizing way? Finally, how can you brace yourself for the notes to come, especially if you disagree with them? Armed with plenty of pitching experience, panelists will answer your questions on what producers are listening for and how to avoid errors that could kill a script on the spot.
