Pitching is an essential skill. In fact we're doing it all the time—whether you're telling a friend about what you're writing, sharing an idea with a collaborator, or trying to raise funds—all of these are a form of pitching. In pitching, the challenging goal is to convey the essence of your project in a way that makes people want more.
Join Alex Burger to learn the art and skill of pitching through the lens of screenwriting—these skills can be applied to dance, theatre, art—whatever your medium may be.
