Screenwriting: Rubbish Pitching Performance
Human beings are naturally good at pitching; we do it on a daily basis to convince other people of our point of view. Think of the times you've talked your way out of paying a bill or talked a friend into doing something you want.
Screenwriters cannot afford to be afraid of pitching; it is an important part of the creative process. Pitching ideas in an informal setting to your friends, family, etc is the best way to discover if your story works. As a professional writer, you will spend nearly 50% of your time pitching to producers, whether selling an idea or during development. Join this weeks meeting and learn the essential techniques of professional film pitching.
A writer's workshop will follow the seminar (you do not need
work to take part). If you would like feedback, please have available
Pitch (Basic premise in 50 words
1 Page synopsis (the entire story in 500 words or less)
Scene (2-5 pages in screenplay format)

Time: 7:30pm GMT
If you would like to take part in the Webinar please e-mail with
