PITCHING THURSDAY @ LONDONSWF 2020
Join screenwriter, pitching guru, and Great American PitchFest co-founder Bob Schultz as he helps you navigate your journey from screenwriter to PRODUCED screenwriter. In this Pitchfest Primer evening session, critical for every LSF delegate, you will build the toolkit you need to get your script into the hands of the broadcasters, agents, and producers who will launch your career.
Pitching is the thing most screenwriters fear the most. **** your fear, and cast it out on Pitching Thursday. When the LSF starts in full on Friday, you will be loaded for bear, ready to **** the challenge.
Pitching is a necessary part of the business. It is not something to get nervous or overwhelmed about, but a skill to be learned and mastered like any other. Pitching Thursday will give you confidence and clarity as you focus on what is special about your project, and you will learn how to powerfully convey your ideas with clarity, passion and confidence to someone else. Don’t fall into the trap of crippling your project just because you didn’t have a killer pitch.
At the end of Pitching Thursday, delegates will:

Possess skills and strategies to make every meeting count.
Attack the issues standing between you and pitching success.
Identify the strengths of your screenplay (and yourself) as they pertain to pitching.
Overcome/adapt to conversational landmines that might land your script in the slush pile.
Prepare you to pitch professionally, passionately, powerfully and (when you need to), on the hoof!
Learn the common pitfalls that **** most great ideas dead.
Give you tons of practice – and practice makes perfect!
Give you TONS of confidence – if you believe, they will believe too!
Turn your fear into FUN! You will leave dying to pitch your projects.
Prepare you for the Great British Pitchfest to get the most from your opportunity.

Pitching Thursday (evening) also includes rehearsal pitching in groups so that you get to refine your project for pitching at the LSF. By the end of the evening, your project will be ready to pitch to any producer, agent or executive you meet at the festival.
Your Tutor:  Bob Schultz has been the President of ScriptFest & the Great American Pitchfest (GAPF) for a decade, helping to develop a community of screenwriters and make the GAPF the #1 rated PitchFest and screenwriting conference in the world. Bob has written two movies, and produced four. When he is not engaged in screenwriting conferences in Los Angeles, Canada, and London, he is writing, producing, and teaching at colleges and events around the world.
