WHY: Cause it’s a fun way to learn new stuff and meet cool people!
So you’ve written a novel or a screenplay. Congratulations!
Now what? How do you create pitch that will get someone excited to read it?
In many ways, everyone has pitched at one time or another. You may have lobbied for an unusual family vacation or a new bicycle. You may have presented a new idea at work that substantially increases the bottom line. You may even have gotten your parents or your kids to do what you ask! So what is it about a pitch that makes it persuasive? What makes people act? And more specifically, how do you get people to read your story?
In this workshop led by Fritz Eberle, we will discuss the critical elements in a sixty second pitch, because that’s usually all you’ve got to spark an agent’s or producer’s interest. We’ll look at complementary materials, like the onesheet, consider other types of story pitches, like the pitch meeting, and review essential pitching do’s and don’ts. Fritz will talk about his experience in various pitch venues (mostly in Los Angeles), and the importance of developing industry relationships. And finally, we’ll watch a half dozen workshop participants deliver a pitch and analyze together what seems to work best.
If you like to deliver a pitch and get feedback the first six to requests we receive will get that opportunity– please email: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
Over the last decade, Fritz has produced and/or directed over a dozen short narrative and commercial films with his company, KeyVision Media. In the last few years Fritz has pitched various film projects at the American Film Market, and in September he heard more than 50 screenplay pitches as a producer at the Inktip Pitchfest in Burbank.
