Breaking In

How does a writer break into the industry? What is the climate like right now for new writers? If you do get a chance to pitch to a producer or studio, how can you be memorable without being obnoxious? Have you been pitching a story you know would be box-office gold, only to find yourself being constantly rejected? Is there a glaring hole in the story you’re pitching? In this seminar, story analysts, John Bucher and Jeremy Casper answer these questions and discuss what you definitely must do in a pitch session as well as the 5 biggest mistakes writers don’t realize they’re making.
