What are your goals for the Great American PitchFest? We are always looking for great projects to help promote and fund.

Do you have any GAPF success stories you can share with us from previous years? Brett Carlson and Brian Graves pitched their horror comedy to HEF in 2014 and we are currently seeking funding and packaging their script.
Is there any advice you would like to offer the writers who are pitching you? Know your story, and focus on clarity.  Start with a clear premise line that hooks your audience and then describe films journey in a clear, logic manner.  Don’t be offended if you don’t hit a home run, and don’t try to defend your work if the person you’re pitching too doesn’t “get it”.  Try to listen, even if they don’t seem like they are trying to help, they most likely are, and arguing won’t make them like, or understand, your story any better.
