Sell Your Movie or TV Show… and Say Hello… at Pitchfest!

Hey, everyone–

Just wanted to invite you all to next month’s annual Great American PitchFest, where I’ll be speaking and doing pitch and project consultations.

For those of you who haven’t been to PitchFest, it’s a two-day festival where writers, producers, directors, and other filmmakers can take classes, network, and pitch their ideas to actual agents, execs, producers, and representatives from studios, networks, and production companies. 

Previous participants have sold scripts, gotten jobs, and signed with representation… and last year’s festival sold out!

Most importantly… I’ll be speaking there at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 13… participating on “Making It Reel,” a panel of reality producers including Tim Crescenti (I Survived a Japanese Game Show) and Donna Michelle Anderson (Big Brother, Queer Eye for the Straight Girl).

I’ll also be doing pitch and project consultations that afternoon, and signing copies of Small Screen, Big Picture
at the Writers Store booth.

Anyway, it should be a valuable, productive, and informative weekend, and I’d love to see you all there!

    When will an event like this [or at least similar to it] be available in the New York City region? I have your book, Small Screen – Big Picture, but presently, I am working on a script for the big screen. I learned about this coming event a little too late to plan to attend and would like to know about such future PitchFests.
