How to Pitch In Person to a Producer
This is the most underappreciated weapon in your arsenal. Far too many writers simply rely on their script to open doors, but in reality, you will have to pitch your story face-to-face at some point in time! Drop all of your preconceived ideas on “pitching” at the door and we’ll tell you what works in this class. We will discuss once and for all how to nail your in person pitch meeting!
This class will be challenging, but rewarding! It’s time for role-playing. You have a completed script, have a strong online presence, a phenomenal query letter, and a list of producers to message. And that’s when it happens… Your phone rings and you hear, “Can you come in tomorrow? We would like to discuss your script!”
We will be bringing in active, credited producers to act as studio executives. Each student will have a designated amount of time to pitch their script. Producers will ask standard questions, as well as throw curve balls at the student. We will simulate a realistic pitch meeting. You will NOT find this anywhere else.
EACH STUDENT WHO COMPLETES THIS CLASS WILL BE REWARDED A FREE ONE MONTH PREMIUM MEMBERSHIP TO SCREENWRITINGSTAFFING.COM
