“I’ve attended other pitch events, and by far the pitches here were better than any other. The classes you offered were great, and I believe helped the writers a lot — the ones that stood out were Pilar’s Pitch class, and the interviews with Mark Fergus and J. C. Spink.”
“I have had follow up meetings with 12 writers who pitched me at the pitchfest and have forwarded 3 to my colleague for further development. We are matching them with producers we work with.”
“This is the #1 Pitchfest to attend. It’s writer-friendly, well-organized and not only gives you the opportunity to ‘meet and greet’ Hollywood, but provides the tools and private practice sessions that help you to make those opportunities productive and positive! Several of my clients walked away with requests for scripts and meetings as a result!”
You are the best! I cannot tell you how much fun I had this weekend. You did a fantastic job and took such good care of us. More importantly, the group of people (decision-makers, pitchers, organizers and volunteers) created such a positive energy and contributed to the success of the event. I look forward to the next one, please keep in touch. Thanks!”
I wanted to let you know that my webisode project that came to me through a pitch at last year’s PitchFest has shifted into high gear. The two young writers have completed six episodes under my supervision and this week I put together a writing room with 8 experienced young writers to work on getting these scripts table ready. I have partnered with a producer — he’s experienced in directing and producing commercials for Olgilvy & Mathers — and we are underway. Casting begins in March. We plan to shoot in April. This has been a thrilling creative experience for all of us and it all started at your fabulous Great Am. PitchFest. I thought you’d like to know. How is this year’s Pitch Fest shaping up? I hope you’ll include me in your plans.
“This was the best pitch event I’ve attended. Very well organized, very friendly, and very respectful of our needs and our place in the business.”
“The Great American Pitchfest is a fantastic networking resource to help screenwriters pitch their ideas, open doors and have an opportunity to meet industry professionals.”
“I love Signe and her team! This was the best turnout of pitches and seminar went well. Very organized and fun.”
“This year’s Pitchfest was absolutely awesome!!
It’s wonderful to have participated for the past 3 years – to watch the growth and hear the praise from other participants on how organized and professional the pitchfest is run.
Thanks, again, for putting together the greatest Pitchfest in the world!!
