The 5 Minute Pitch:
I view hundreds of presentations over the course of the year. I’m frequently surprised by how many presentations don’t convey a clear story. A great “play pitch” presentation leaves venture capitalists, prospects, and judges inspired. The audience should walk away with the ability to restate your vision, a clear picture of how you will achieve that vision, and the economic ramifications of attaining it. Learn how, then Pitch your play to Our Producers.
Creating Legislation: Alternative Funding Raising:
Are you tire of looking for money the old fashion way, begging? Then learn how to go after the big bucks. This workshop teaches how to go after government dollars and create an entire new approach to raising funds.
Story Telling As Theatre:
Learn to use interactive performances in the oldest form 'The art of oral storytelling' drama, music and dance to help educate and enhance the creative potential, self-confidence and self-esteem of children and young people from varied backgrounds. Led by Nana Malaya, a master story teller with 30 years of experience.
Is Your Play Ready For Main Stream:
More importantly, are you? Learning how the business really works, creating the best possible resume, finding a photographer, scheduling a shoot date, then bringing back your pictures, choosing the right one given your type, finalizing your resume, absorbing info on agents, submissions, and auditioning.
