About this course:

In today’s media landscape, knowing how to pitch both film and television projects is essential to a successful career. Understanding the difference between the two is the first important step. In this course, you demystify the pitch process for both film and television, as well as study the key similarities and the subtle differences in each format. Topics include outlining and preparing your live pitch, character building, pacing with emotion, sizzle versus story, presenting yourself as a passionate expert, dealing with notes, and post-pitch strategies. Lectures and workshop time allow you to apply these lessons to your original material with an opportunity by the end of class to practice some live pitching on your own.
