Art of the Pitch

Thursday, October 15, 2020
4 – 5:30PM

Thinking about making a movie or show? Great! We wanna watch it. But first, how are you going to pitch it to the people who will help get it off the ground?

We’ve got answers through our Art of the Pitch workshop.

This workshop is about connecting what you really want to do with your career - that big, hairy, audacious goal - with the steps it takes to get there, and how you have to be prepared to pitch to different constituents along the way.

This workshop expands on the pitching section of our Crowdfunding workshop to covering various conditions for pitching during your independent creative career.
