Creating, Packaging & Pitching Your Idea.
Pitching is at the heart of what the entertainment community does. We seek to explain our vision so effectively that we enthuse and inspire others to become recruits to our mission. Yes, pitching is a crucial part of the business of creators selling content to buyers. But it is about so much more. Pitching is about explaining to outsiders or our colleagues the intangible, whether they be concepts, processes, opportunities or personality potentials. Participants in this four day module we will explore pitching of television show ideas, business concepts and ultimately themselves.
On *Day One* (hosted in collaboration with Medienforum) we look at audiences to see what they are responding to and how to pitch directly to them by social and other means. We look to future needs and how to pitch the future to people who are sometimes stuck in the past
On *Day Two* We draw back the curtain to see how good stories can make great pitches. We workshop through a range of pitches for concepts varying from digital to technology to TV and dissect what makes them work.
On *Day Three* we lean towards the business side of pitching and the pitching of businesses. Money is serious – different circumstances and different stake holders require different types of pitches.
On *Day Four* everyone dives into the tricks of the trade – the universal skills that help a pitcher “own the room” and turn critics into converts.This session draws together the revelations of the previous days and puts them into practice. The day ends with a workshop where participants demonstrate pitching perfection – and “enter pitching paradise”.
