The Art of the Pitch

Before we get to tell our stories, we have to learn how to tell the story about our stories. Knowing how to convey the specifics about your upcoming project in a dynamic, succinct way can land you not only investors, but collaborators, audience members, and more.

In this hands-on workshop, you’ll learn:
What makes a good pitch How to tailor your pitch to different audiences Why a little research can go a long way Why practice is perfect
Most importantly, this workshop will give you a chance to practice refining your own pitch in a safe, encouraging environment. Who should attend this workshop? Anyone who has a great story to tell to potential collaborators, investors, and audience members (i.e. EVERYONE who has a movie to make.)
