The Film Mechanic of Screenwriting was a blast! [VIDEO COURSE]

with No Comments

Hey Content Creator,

I just finished hosting a very special guest LIVE on Facebook at The Pitch 101 Community page.

Screenwriter, Deri Tyton, gave some really phenomenal tips on writing story, plot, dramatic action, and so much more!

So many people tuned in to hear his great takeaways. If you missed it, you can catch the REPLAY here!

Leave a comment and let me know what your most favorite takeaway was!

Mine was his explanation of the difference between story and plot...or maybe it was the one about writing the answer to the central dramatic question throughout... 🤔

There were so many! < a href="https://www.facebook.com/thepitch101community/videos/2080807265481911/">WATCH THE REPLAY HERE

In this 3 minute video I created, I discuss if having a proof of concept for your pitch is a good idea or not and how to pitch with it. As a bonus, I discuss how to answer the question, "Tell me more about you?" You can check out the video HERE.


A Pitch Bible That Get Results 3-Day Webinar

Squeaky, are you taking the upcoming webinar? You really should if you are a filmmaker or TV show creator. I've seen many poorly executed pitch materials, where the content creator think they've done well with them, only to learn the hard way that the materials they've created didn't have the necessary elements in it for the decision makers to be well informed, or worse, they didn't create any at all.

Here is what you can expect to get from taking the webinar:

• I will share techniques on creating pitch materials that most likely has NEVER been shared before.  In the webinar, I will teach you unique ways of creating overviews, synopsis's, character descriptions, log-lines, locations and settings, and more that will help your materials speak for themselves if you've never pitched a word!

• For all of you who are creating formats (think American Idol, The Voice, Bachelor, The Rap Game), I will go through each element that makes up the format bible.

• Not only will you have a better understanding of the various bibles, what they are comprised of, and what sets them a part, we will also take a look at look books and breakdown how to create them as well!  (I will show examples of some beautiful look books that demonstrate great storytelling)!

• Additionally, you will have access to a SECRET Facebook group where I will host an ASK ME ANYTHING follow up LIVE exactly one week later. This is a great thing! You will have a full week to process and implement all that was discuss during our time together, then send me your specific questions so I can ask them LIVE!

Are you still on the fence about taking the webinar?  Do you have any other questions that I can answer for you so that you can make a determination as to if this webinar is for you? If so, hit reply and send me your specific questions. I want to answer them for you. (or you can email info@thepitch101.com)

I Almost Gave Up! Finish The Job.

Hey Content Creators,

I almost gave up! Almost...

I recently went live on Facebook to talk about my struggle in this industry and while on my book tour. In short, I almost gave up my dream! Yep! I wanted to quit! But, thankfully I stayed the course.

I created a video that talks about my struggles and all that I did to rise above wanting to quit.

Watch the LIVE.

I almost gave up! Video Part 1

Finish The Job! Video Part 2

I hope this message inspires you to Finish The Job!

#100Pitches LA was Everything! [Photos]

#100Pitches LA Was Everything! 

So...what you don't know is that #100Pitches LA almost didn't happen!
When I tell you, there were many things trying to prevent me from you...I mean MANY! But, LA wanted #100Pitches LIVE to happen, and they got information to make it come to fruition. I met some amazing content creators (many who were women), that went out on a limb, reach into their networks, and who came hungry and eager to learn!  I'm so grateful.
There were so much great information that came out of LA.  Some of the takeaways were:

Regarding asking for NDA's -  

 

  1. Austyn Biggers (Development Executive and Executive Producer at LOGO, MTV, VH1) suggested, If they have a physical company address...then you may not want to ask, but, if they don't have a company address, and you don't know much about them...you may want to ask for an NDA. ~Austyn Biggers
  2. Trey Haley (President of Tri Destined Studios) said that we should follow our instincts.  He suggested, we should ask questions about everyone who will be in the room at the meeting. If people are there that you know nothing about, be careful to share our information.

 

Regarding Collaborating with Others - 

 

  1. Austyn B. suggested that we should only consider partnering with others who have something you don't; like, more reach, bigger network, more specific knowledge or skill, or voice.
  2. Trey Haley mentioned that everything about getting your project to come to fruition will be about partnering with others. Be prepared to make strategic alliances who could help take your project to the next level.

 

Regarding Development of Materials -

 

  1. Jennifer Williams (President of the Organization of Screenwriters), urged screenwriters to write many drafts of their screenplays.  She spoke about seeing so many scripts that aren't nearly ready.
  2. I gave a pitching checklist of how to know you are ready to pitch.  I walked through all the materials you should expect to prepare before your meetings. You can find it in my book, #100Pitches.

There was so much more and I can't possibly remember all of the gems that were shared.

If you were at the LA event, share with me your #1 takeaway!!!  I want to know what was helpful to you in your journey.

 

 

A Pitch Bible that Get’s Results – WEBINAR

with No Comments

Hey Content Creators,

I KNEW IT!

I received such a huge response from social media regarding this workshop offering: A Pitch Bible That Gets Results!

I figured I would.

In past workshops, this section would take so long to get through that I’d barely have time to discuss anything else. The participants would have so many questions for me to answer that I knew it needed to be separate from other pitching topics!

So, I’ve been fine tuning what the 3 day webinar would entail so that you could get the most out of it. But before I finalize it, I want to make sure to have your input.

The APBTGR workshop teaches the importance of creating a pitch bible no matter if you are creating a tv show, short or feature film, and, or web-series.

A pitch bible is a creative, sales tool that writers/creators use to fully develop and pitch their projects to networks, production companies and in some cases investors. It also helps you when constructing your pitch.

The webinar will explore how to create all of the elements that make up a winning pitch bible; including, log-line, premise, overview, characters, genre, mood/tone, story arc, episodes and/or structure and how to create a bible that stands out from the rest.  Too often pitch bible and other materials simply list the facts. This webinar will add the creativity of storytelling and your project’s facts in one!

In this workshop, I use case studies of winning bibles to draw conclusions to what works and why. Q & A is built into this workshop.

I need your help! I’ve created a 3 question survey to finalize all details. It’s simple I want to narrow down a date for the 3-day webinar, a cost (YES! I’m leaving that up to you), and I want to make sure it includes what you want to know!

Help me, will you?

Does This Interest You? A Pitch Bible that Get’s Results!

with No Comments

Hey pitchers!

I believe one of the biggest issues with pitching is that we lack the knowledge to put together the proper materials! At least that was my biggest mistake. It wasn't that I wasn't prepared to pitch my project, it was that I was unaware that the materials I was presenting were all wrong!

I'll soon be offering this as a workshop to a women's organization, but was interested to see how many others would like to learn how to create pitching materials that win; specifically the format bible, one-sheet, and show bible? If you need to strengthen your materials, (which will ultimately help your pitch), then let me know of you interest, subscribe to the site if you aren't already subscribed, and stay tuned in for more information!

**A Pitch Bible that Get’s Results**

This 3 day webinar will go in depth into the importance of creating a pitch bible, the elements that make up a pitch bible, and how to create a bible that stands out from the rest. In this webinar, I use case studies of winning bibles to draw conclusions to what works and why. Q & A is built into this webinar.
