SERVICE DESCRIPTION

If your script is ready, pitch with confidence.

You know the expression, "You only get one chance to make a first impression?"

It's critical to have a solid pitch for those general meetings with Netflix, Hulu, Disney, Harpo Studios, Paramount+ or others. And in this highly competitive industry, you have to be able to pitch at a moment’s notice. Studio executives, network producers, agents, and managers want you to succeed, but they also expect you to be prepared and polished

Schedule a 30-minute zoom call to meet with Producer, Writer & Sr. Manager of Writer Relations, Shayna Weber, and receive one-on-one feedback on your pitch. Her experience as a screenwriter, producer, and general hustler has led her to successfully network, land meetings, and pitch to some of the biggest companies in the business, including Warner Bros, Netflix, DreamWorks, Disney and Nickelodeon.

Length of your pitch can vary from 90 seconds to 20 minutes, depending on what your project is.   

Your 30-minute practice includes:

  • An opportunity to practice your pitch in a safe place - Work out those nerves
  • Notes on how to improve your pitch
  • Guidance on what to expect in a general studio and network pitch meetings
  • Tips and tricks on how to win over executives. Watch some here. (and the pitches referenced here)

Practice makes perfect. Do it in a safe space with an expert who's pitched to top industry pros. Whether you will be pitching to executives in person or over Zoom, let us help you get “pitch ready."
