The ‘Elevator Pitch’
Ever had a chance to pitch your movie to a producer/director in a lift or at the bar and found yourself humming, hawing and falling over your words?
Well now’s your chance to practise your elevator pitch and maybe win a critique of your screenplay.
Pitch your feature or short film (or even radio play, TV show or stage-play) and the best one will win a critique of their script.
Send your pitch of around 25 words (no more than 30…the shorter and sharper the better) to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also send me an audio or video file if you want to do it that way. Or if you’re feeling really brave, you can tweet your pitch – make sure to include my twitter handle @courier_twelve in the tweet to make sure I get it.
The best pitch (one that ‘sells’ the film) will win a free critique of the script. This will include suggested improvements to concept, structure, ‘world-of-the-story’, pacing, character and dialogue.
Looking forward to getting those pitches!
