with Producer/Director Mandy Lake

If you’re planning to attend any industry events this year; conferences, meetings, networking events, we can help you get ready to put your best self forward. With AIDC and Screen Forever coming up in March and Screenworks Regional to Global Screen Forum at the end of July (just to name a few industry events), you will benefit from honing your pitching and presentation skills. These interactive webinars will show you how!  

Having spent more than 25 years on both sides of the story pitching table – as a

photojournalist, media/marketing/PR operative, artistic director and filmmaker – Mandy has gained an appreciable insight into the art of pitching and will show webinar attendees how not only sell their stories and projects, but also themselves.

As such, she’ll be sure to cover off: Personal and professional brands, marketing principles, finding the hooks and emotional ‘button pushers’, developing written pitch materials and teasers, the physical pitch, creating connections and networking tactics, as well as potential funding sources, marketplaces, and industry peeps to pitch to.
