DON"T BE LEFT BEHIND...Get Out There and PITCH! GET ACCESS, GET HEARD!
This year the Atlanta Pitch Summit and it's new digital platform is getting you in front of the right executive that will take your project or talent to the next level.
If you have a great story, idea or movie or if you are talent, cast or cast member(s), or an entertainer...this is meant for you! There are many great shows that we watch daily or see on the internet but not all make it to theaters or cable television. You have access with The Atlanta Pitch Summit to showcase your talent or finally PITCH your best Pitch.
The Atlanta Pitch Summit™ is an original weekend event in the Southeast region for all writers, producers, directors, actors, talent, cast or cast member(s) and entertainment entrepreneurs to pitch their idea to television networks, film studios, or an executive. The distribution process of selling a project or talent can become stressful, time consuming and costly for the average person when trying to transition their script to mainstream. The educational factor is to learn how to pitch and give you the opportunity.
