Your 5 Day Retreat
(SCHEDULE SUBJECT TO CHANGE)
The “Secret Producer” Pitch Party
In addition to your 5 minute one-on-one pitch with a TV executive, you’ll also get entry to the culminating event of the retreat, The “Secret Producer”Pitch Party, exclusively for retreat attendees.
Mingling incognito among the crowd will be a bevy of special invitees: TV Producers, Directors, Executives, Agents & Managers at all levels!
For two hours, you’ll practice the skills you’ve developed, pitching your heart out to everyone in the room, with no risk of rejection. If your script is not for them, the producer will simply pitch you their own project, as if they were a writer just like you.
But if you pique their interest, they’ll identify themselves as a “Secret Producer” and request your work.
And in the meantime, you’ll be taking your pitching skills to the next level, not only building potential connections to industry professionals, but also building the connections you need to succeed among your own community of emerging writers.
5 Day Retreat
