Pitch Boot Camp


Pitch Boot Camp (PBC) is designed to drill prospective screenwriters into delivering professional, concise and interesting pitches comfortably and sincerely to anyone at any time in any place under any conditions.

Our goal is to prepare screenwriters for participation at any pitching or networking event.

The PBC structure will consist of two parts. The first part will be a discussion on pitching including information provided by past Speakers.

The second part will mirror that of a PitchFest’s format, and thus potentially increase the effectiveness of the screenwriter’s pitch ability.

Tables will be set up just like a PitchFest, attended by “company reps” (mock production companies, agents, managers and studio development executives).

Each participant/attendee will pitch at each table for five minutes (one or two minute story pitch followed by Q&A) and also switch roles to act as “company reps” to hear pitches from the other participating writers.

Company reps will mark a simple checkbox score card on the major pitching points to help the pitcher to gauge how thoroughly they are communicating their project.

Participants need to have their material copyright protected and have a prepared pitch ready for the PBC event.
