The webinar would, of course, cover all of the components that are necessary in this pitch document such as the concept page, premise, personal statement, series unanswerable question, character bios, pilot synopsis, additional episode loglines, the story engine, season arc and a summarizing wrap. 

However, more importantly and central to this presentation would be Terry’s expounding on of how to make your TV pitch bible not only a phenomenal reference document proving you have a series here, but just how it is fresh, timely and most of all, how it is “you”.  We will go through the elements and methodology of how to do this in a way that is unique and in the writer’s own voice; the vision and the slant that comes from the essence of the writer, their world, how they see it and conveying that on the page.

            Terry started out in the entertainment industry as a rock and roll musician writing guitar and vocal parts on original songs for the bands he was in.  This naturally segued into acting and then playwriting.  He has written 30 short plays; acted, directed and produced in the theatre and has been produced 100 times in the United States, the UK and Australia winning several awards in the process.  He has also written several feature length, short screenplays and TV pilots.

            As a consultant and story analyst for several production companies and their affiliates, Terry’s job was to take an in-depth look at the screenplays, teleplays and TV pilots that were under consideration for backing and financing to be made.  Just a few of noteworthy scripts he consulted on that made it to the big screen include “The Truth about Charlie” written by Peter Stone and Jonathan Demme; “The Good Girl” by Mike White starring Jennifer Aniston; “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind” by Charlie Kaufman and “People I Know” by John Robin Baitz.

            Terry believes that every writer has a gift within them that is called their own unique voice and when you blend and weave this into your craft and great idea, magic happens, and the magic is “you”.  He expounds on this premise in his E-book, “That Sounds Like Me – implementing your own unique voice into Act I of your screenplay or TV script”.
