Perfect Your Pitch: One day Masterclass with Bob Schultz

Get yourself LSF and Pitchfest ready spending a full day developing the skills you need to pitch your project to producers, agents, actors, and more with one of the best Pitch tutors in the world, Bob Schultz.
Spend a full day developing the skills you need to pitch your project to anybody – producers, agents, actors, and more. With a focus on general pitching and networking skills in the morning and a full afternoon applying those strategies and techniques to your project, you will finish the day ready to convince anybody to say “send it over.”

When: Saturday 5th August 2017
Where: Ealing Studios, Ealing W5 5EP
How much: £69 (London Screenwriters Festival Delegates Discounted Ticket: £48.50)

This full day of Pitch Development will include:

CULTIVATING YOUR SKILLS: Pitching isn’t about memorizing a monologue, it’s a combination of knowledge, confidence, energy, and professionalism. Let’s get you out of your writerly solitude and into the business of networking!
FINDING YOUR STORY: Distill your 100 page screenplay into one concise sentence, easy for anybody to grasp in a meeting, in a pub, or on the phone!
PITCHING YOURSELF: Production can be a long, stressful endeavor. It is critical to be a team player. What is expected of you, beyond writing a quality script?
DEVELOPING YOUR LOGLINE: Every writer hates them, every producer wants them. What belongs in (and out of) this critical sales tool?
UNEARTHING THE PITCH IN ANY PROJECT: Identify the exciting details of an existing project and pitch it right there on the spot. Pitching someone else’s project requires the same skills as pitching your own. The only difference is, yours hasn’t been produced yet.
CREATING IT: Apply your newly-perfected skills to your specific project, and create your iron-clad pitch.
DRILLING IT: In our boot camp environment, perfect your pitch with your fellow writers through repetition and critique.
HUSTLING IT: learn and develop the strategies necessary to get pitch meetings -- and build your professional network -- with the producers, agents, actors, managers, and directors who will hear your pitch. Every pitch is a conversation. You are learning what to say... here's how to find the right professionals to LISTEN!

It’s time to take control of your career and get those scripts off your hard drive and into the pipeline. The only thing standing in your way is yourself!
