July 12th: Pitch Class

7-10pm    Jul 12th 2018    SCHQ 

At the Scary Cow Pitch Meeting, any member can pitch their film idea, but not all projects get made. Getting a film off the ground has everything to do with the person pitching it. Is the idea strong, clear, and something that can be accomplished without a million dollar budget? We’ll nail down the basics and then some and you’ll leave class with a plan of attack for our July 15th Pitch Meeting.

Highlights include:

– Essential components of a pitch
– Common mistakes to avoid
– Identifying and expressing the theme of your story
– Generating excitement
– How the pitch process in Scary Cow works
– What makes a pitch stand out to fellow Scary Cow members
– Constructive feedback on your pitch

Class instructor, Alexa Fraser-Herron most recently produced the award-winning Real Artists which is currently on the festival circuit and has screened at Cinequest, San Francisco Film Festival, and Cannes.
