Perfecting Your Pitch is a three-session intensive workshop designed to bring out the best in your film, television, or web-series idea and present it in a concise, effective, and catchy 1-pager, presentation paragraph, log-line, or “Elevator” pitch to potential producers. Whether you’re interested in fine-tuning only one of the above or all four, this workshop will identify the “hook” of your idea and make sure it is placed front and centre in your presentation.

Through the use of examples, basic notions of storytelling and cinematic structure, effective oral communication, and feedback, Perfecting Your Pitch will focus on originality and appeal, simplicity, and delivery in an effort to better acquaint and arm participants with their own work, ready to pitch effectively at a moment’s notice.

Additionally, the workshop will explore notions of confidence in pitching and identify different avenues available to get your idea in front of industry professionals and decision-makers.

Participants should bring an original fiction or documentary idea for a feature or short film, and/or a TV or web series to the workshop.
