Thinking about making a movie, show, or web series? Great! We wanna watch it. But first, how are you going to pitch it to the people who will help get it off the ground?
We’ve got answers!
Our Art of the Pitch workshop is about connecting what you really want to do with your career ー that big, hairy, audacious goal ー and how you have to be prepared to pitch to different audiences along the way.
Seed&Spark’s Bri Castellini will expand on the pitching section of our Crowdfunding to Build Independence workshop to help you articulate to every potential audience what makes you and your project special, whether you have 280 characters or a full 30 minute oral presentation. By the end, you’ll be a pro at verbalizing what makes your idea stand out and why you’re telling this story.
Make sure to RSVP to receive the livestream link, as well as our follow-up email with our workshop deck, plus additional educational resources!
The link to the livestream will be emailed out to you 1 hour before the event starts!
About our partner MPAC Hollywood Bureau
MPAC’s Hollywood Bureau changes the narrative of Islam and Muslims in the entertainment industry so that audiences see Muslims as vital contributors to creating social and cultural change in America and around the world.
We do this by engaging decision makers and creatives to improve the quality of authentic, nuanced, and inclusive depictions of Islam and Muslims. We also create opportunities for Muslim storytellers to tell their own stories.
Television and film projects that depict Islam and Muslims in their storylines have an impact on both public perception and on the Muslim community. For many, pop culture is the only contact that millions of Americans have with Muslims and Islam, and for decades we have been portrayed as terrorists or other misinformed stereotypes.
The resulting negative perceptions have caused misunderstanding, hatred, and increasing marginalization of our communities. More authentic depictions on screen will not only work to dispel misconceptions and fears of Islam and Muslims held by audiences, but will also show that we have much more in common than what divides us.
