Every film industry creative has to pitch at some point. Writers pitch to producers, producers pitch to sales agents, and sales agents pitch to distributors. This masterclass talks about some of the universal principles of pitching, as well as the particular challenges for the screenwriter.
Writing great scripts does not guarantee you a career. In order to sell your work, you need to establish connections with the gatekeepers. This often starts with a first contact at an event where many others are pitching just like you. How do you stand out, and come across as the professional everybody wants to work with?
