From Idea to Pitch Ready

DUE TO DEMAND, WE HAVE DECIDED TO RUN AN ADDITIONAL MORNING SESSION OF OUR “FROM IDEA TO PITCH READY” WORKSHOP

A practical 3 hour workshop on how to prepare yourself and the key elements that you need to consider before you start pitching your screen project.

Innovative thinker and entrepreneurial leader Kylee Ingram will take you through key considerations for validating your idea, identifying potential buyers and audience, choosing your team and effective communication strategies.

Screenworks Programs and Operations Manager Lisa O’Meara will take you through upcoming screen industry opportunities and how to prepare for them.

Through this workshop you will assess screen project opportunities, begin to prepare materials and documents to attract interest from broadcasters, producers and funding bodies and you will leave with strategies and tools to apply to your production ideas.

From Idea to Pitch Ready is the first workshop in a series of events to help you prepare for the pitching and industry connection opportunities that Screenworks provides including Meet the Broadcaster and representation at Screen Forever.
