Event description

Description

Now is the time to be selling pitches while the industry is buying them up with an ever-increasing appetite. Amazon and Netflix alone spent 12 billion dollars last year on original programming, and many think they'll spend even more this year.

In the past two years, I helped dozens of my student and clients sell pitches. These writers understood what is truly required to be good in a room. They also knew the three essential questions they had to answer to earn a "yes."

I invite you to learn how to wow executives, producers and showrunners with your ideas in a brand new Pitching Master Class designed for writers serious about breaking into the current TV market.


What You'll Learn

  • The three questions you'll need to answer to get the "yes"
  • What kind of pitches are selling in the current marketplace
  • What all successful pitches have in common
  • What to do if you're terrified of public speaking
  • The best way to train yourself to get better in the room
  • How much information you'll be expected to give
  • The differences between TV and feature pitching
  • How to close so they want to hear more
  • The front-to-back ratio
  • The difference between selling and persuading
  • How to avoid the most common pitching mistakes
