What makes the ideal writer for your company? Transparency both professionally and personally.   Ability to drive and construct their ideas with a solid understanding on story structure and the ability to navigate each creative turn with precision and courage.  Writers that work without creative limitations and boundaries in story development are appealing to us.  ‘Save the Cat’ book is followed by 95%+ of our writers.  Award Winning writers (any contest anywhere on earth) move to the front of the line!
What are your goals for the Great American PitchFest? We are seeking projects with well developed FEMALE lead roles for 2016-17.  Women that are clever, fierce, strong with a dash of kindness and heart.  Also seeking projects that are adventurous  with themes of treasure hunting, journey into the wild, survival and coming of age.  Crime/Detective TV pilots.
Have you had success at pitching events before? I’ve been a special guest, speaker/instructor and selected as a pitch finalist myself at some of the top industry (Variety, AFM, etc.) events in LA.  I’ve help connect writers at events with managers and producers.
Do you have any GAPF success stories you can share with us from previous years? 2015 was a positive and productive experience for us!  We heard some great pitches.
Is there any advice you would like to offer the writers who are pitching you? We encourage writers to prepare a well-constructed ONE-SHEET of their project as a “leave behind” following a formal ΓÇ£pitchΓÇ¥ or procuring a query email.  As described by Industry professional Carol Kirschner, “A leave-behind is generally a concise one-page document that ideally presents your pitch in the best possible light.   These one-sheets usually consist of a logline, a BRIEF paragraph that describes the world of the show, what makes it compelling ΓÇô why viewers will watch it and a description of the MAIN characters and their relationships to each other (hint: make sure thereΓÇÖs conflict).”
