Pitching Thursday with Pilar Alessandra at the London Screenwriters' Festiv...
Thu 14 September 2017, 18:00 – 20:45 BST
Pitching Thursday is back by popular demand, our popular pre-festival event that prepares you for the weekend of pitching that lies ahead.
'The best workshop on Pitching I have attended. The day was organised to give us the skills, encourage us to use them and deliver a pitch. An excellent session!'
'Really excellent and incredibly useful. Thanks to strategies she gave me, I had confidence in my ideas and abilities. 6 pitches at pitchfest. 6 requests for scripts.'
Run by studio screenplay reader, script consultant and director of the LA writers’ studio On the Page®, Pilar Alessandra, Pitching Thursday is designed to improve your pitching skills, giving you insight into your style, ideas and delivery. This will ideally prep you for the Great Birtish Pitchfest at the LSF too.
Pitching is a necessary part of the business. It is not something to get nervous or overwhelmed about, but a skill to be learned and mastered like any other. Pitching Thursday will give you confidence and clarity as you focus on what is special about your project, and you will learn how to powerfully convey your ideas passion to someone else. Don’t fall into the trap of crippling your project just because you didn’t have a killer pitch.

Pitching Thursday also includes rehearsal pitching in groups so that you get to refine your project for pitching at the LSF. By the end of the session, your project will be ready to pitch to any producer, agent or executive you meet at the festival.

Venue: Regents University, Regents Park
Date: Thursday September 14th 2017, 6.00pm to 8.45pm
