FilmLab Happy Hour – Practice Your Pitch!
Online: Practice Your Pitch
Are you thinking about pitching at the Willamette Writers Conference? Or maybe you’re excited to share your work, but don’t know how? Perhaps you’re wondering what it’s like to pitch to an industry professional. Join us online at the FilmLab Happy Hour meeting on June 14th from 5-6 PM ONLINE for Pitch Practice!
Any genre is welcome, from film to novels to nonfiction!
Come and pitch your project online to industry veterans in real time. You’ll get a chance to pitch your own work — or just listen in — and get advice and tips from industry professionals.
Don’t know what a pitch is? This is the place to find out! Want to present your project in the best possible light? This is the place.
Whether you are pitching at the conference and want to get comfortable, or you are thinking about how to present your work to your friends and colleagues, this workshop will help you find the perfect pitch.
Each pitch presenter will have approximately eight minutes — just like at the conference! Just remember, you won’t present the whole time — a pitch is a conversation between you and the professional.
Come prepared to share your work and listen too!
