This year, the always epic Jacob Krueger Studio Holiday Party goes ONLINE with a special free event that’s gonna knock your socks off! Make friends, build connections, learn how to pitch from Jacob Krueger and the JKS faculty, pitch your script and get feedback from our teachers and community! All for free.
We’ll even send you a special cocktail and mocktail recipe for this year’s JKS holiday drink, The 7th Act, so you can celebrate with us, no matter where you are in the world!
Come for free. Or support the event with a donation, and we’ll match every dollar you give, and use it to defray the cost of classes, ProTrack and Workshops for writers affected by the crisis. We’ve already given away over $98,756 in scholarships since the start of the crisis, and you can help us give even more!
Whether you’re a total newbie who’s terrified of pitching, or a seasoned pro who lives to sell, this special seminar with Studio Founder Jacob Krueger will show you how to sell your script, without selling your soul!
Join Jake and our world-renowned faculty in intimate online breakout rooms, where you can practice your pitch, get feedback, ask questions, and take your pitching prowess to the next level.
Like speed-dating for your script. Every 10 minutes, you’ll meet someone new: a writer, an industry guest, a JKS faculty member, or even Jake! Meet and greet. Pitch your scripts. Share stories. Make connections. Have fun!
Your hosts for the evening are Jacob Krueger Studio Faculty and Team Members.
There will be multiple opportunities for everyone to pitch. Some lucky students will pitch directly to Jake as part of the seminar in part 1. Others will be randomly selected to pitch in the smaller breakout sessions with our faculty in part 2. And everyone will have a chance to pitch their script at least 5 times, one-on-one, to a randomly matched member of our community–whether that’s another student, a JKS faculty member, an industry guest, or Jake!
You can share as little or as much as you’d like– and if you prefer, you don’t have to pitch anything. You can use the event just to connect and make new friends. But we have a feeling, once you realize how supportive, safe, and kind our community is, you’re going to find your courage, and realize that pitching can actually be fun! So make sure to attend Jake’s seminar and learn how to break through those common fears, and then feel free to just be you, and share whatever you want to share with our community.
This is a tough time for small businesses like ours, and an even tougher time for many of our students, who have lost their jobs, seen their hours reduced, or been charged with care of a loved one. Jacob Krueger Studio is devoted to supporting our students during this difficult time, through our weekly free Quarantinis program, free events like Pitch Festivus, and a generous scholarship fund which we’ve used to defray the costs of classes, Protrack and Workshops for students affected by the crisis. Since March we have given away two 50% scholarships for every full price class purchase, and have matched every dollar that has been donated by our community. We have awarded over $98,756 in scholarships since the start of the crisis, and your generous donation will allow us to continue these programs and award many more.
Our resident mixologist (and Creative Director) Lacy Daigle is mixing up two special drink recipes we can all share on the night of Pitch Festivus. One is a Mocktail, and one is a Cocktail. So keep an eye on your email, and prepare to mix up some deliciousness!
Something… OK, seriously. It’s a holiday party, you fabulous writers. So wear something fun, festive, flirty, flip, fuzzy, funky… or just come as you are!
