Pilot Pitch Lab
Oct 9 to Nov 20 — Saturdays, 2:30pm-5:30pm (PDT)
Instructor: Spiro Skentzos
So you’ve finessed your script. Now what? It’s time to sell it. Meaning… it’s time to craft a killer pitch.You’ll learn how it’s done, and by the end, you’ll be pitching your pilot to the class.
This 4 session intensive class will give you the tools, insight and hands-on experience to successfully pitch your show. It’s also a great way to develop your project.
Pitching and writing are very different skill sets. You will learn all the rudiments of pitching— how to reverse engineer your idea into a written and verbal pitch, how to hook and engage your audience from the get-go, tricks for memorizing and what to expect in the room. You’ll watch Spiro pitch a project he is going out with this season. Then you’ll have the invaluable experience of pitching your own TV show to the class and receiving feedback.
“The Pitch Lab is invaluable! I tell all of my fellow writer friends about it. Not only did I learn the ins and outs of developing, crafting, and delivering a captivating pitch, I also received a crash course in the business behind pitching – from PODs to If Come deals. Anyone who is interested in selling something, being better in the room, or articulating their work should take this lab.”
