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!
About our partner ATX Television Festival and The Pitch Competition
ATX Television Festival is an annual event produced by ATX TV, taking place every June in Austin, TX. As the leading television festival, it brings together fans and industry to celebrate the television medium by looking at its history, where it is now, and where it is headed. The festival consists of screenings followed by Q&As, panels, and events (parties, live music, meet-ups, super-secret happy hours, etc) and is known for reunions of both classic shows and cult hits. Screenings showcase never-aired pilots, canceled too soon series, and current favorites, as well as world premieres of new series. Panels span from industry deep dives, to fan-focused conversations, along with discussions on representation (in front of and behind the camera) and responsibility in storytelling. The ATX TV audience is comprised equally of consumers and industry professionals, and ATX Television Festival is the only place they come together as one community to discuss and celebrate all aspects of #TVTogether.

The Pitch Competition:
Now in its 10th year, the focus of The Pitch Competition is YOU, the burgeoning undiscovered TV writer — and giving you the chance to take your idea for the next great TV show from pitch to screen by opening the doors to some of TV’s greatest showrunners and executives.
In working closely with our panelists, alums, advisory board, and competition partners, our mission is to give you the opportunity, tools, and resources for career advancement by creating a community of support between you and your fellow writers and leading industry members.
We may open the door, but it’s your ideas and talent that keep you in the room.
