So, Screenwriter, your final draft is ready. 

Now what do you do?

 

Prepare your pitch. And really, you can work on your pitch as you continue to write. Your pitch will change as your story begins to show you all its colors and it should. What serves us and our prospects best is to, at all times, regardless of the shifting nature or incompleteness of the screenplay, be able to describe the story as it’s currently occurring, in a way that is engaging and—most importantly—concise. 

 

This magic doesn’t happen on its own or overnight. 

 

You have to craft this magic.

 

And not only once. 

 

You have to practice. It’s your duty to bring your story alive for people in brief evocative words. 

 

Ideally you’ll have more than one pitch for your story and you’ll know it well enough to adapt it dynamically on the fly to accommodate a lack of time, or a special interest of a specific audience. 

 

But this can only happen if you practice. 

 

Come practice with us. 

What we do during Screenwriter Sundays?

Hone elevator pitches to effortless perfection.

Your verbal pitch will likely be the first contact anyone has with your TV show. It’s your irresistible pitch for your TV series that will most likely win you your initial meetings. Especially when you’ve been putting your heart and mind into your project, lucrative opportunities present themselves unexpectedly, like at a dinner engagement, sharing a taxi or an elevator ride. When you refine and practice your pitch and keep it ready, you’ll slay that unexpected opportunity every time!

These are not a one-and-done pitch workshops. In these workshops you’ll pitch your TV series or film idea week after week to hone it to perfection, then practice it, so you’ll be able to deliver it effortlessly and with confidence every time. Refining your TV series pitch as you receive feedback and incorporate your new ideas helps you discover the aspects of your pitch that are most appealing to your audience, and identify the areas in your pitch that can be streamlined or expanded to deliver your presentation with maximum impact in the least amount of time.

Positive feedback on your strengths combined with practice builds confidence.

Why master the art of pitching your film idea? It’s your pitch that will get your screenplay read.

Your ability to pitch with confidence and eloquence will assist you in gaining interest and support for your project. If you intend to sell your screenplay or make the movie yourself, your ability to confidently deliver a concise irresistible pitch is essential. Come practice with us before you do it for the gold!

Make opening scenes irresistible.

I heard a rumor from a reliable source that if the first page of a script doesn't pull the reader in, the script likely gets a pass - so those pages have to be tight! There's nothing as valuable for a good out-loud read of the opening pages so that you can affirm that your beats and hooks are getting across as you intend.

Read the first 3 to 10 pages of your script aloud to our screenwriter mastermind group; get roundtable feedback. Implement what you want and bring it back again! Repeat until you’re satisfied your opening is at its peak essence.

So are you ready to optimize your creative output and join a progressive community of ambitious writers committed to bringing our stories to the world?

 

If the answer to that question is affirmative,

I encourage you to join us.
