Pre-Expo Pitch Training And Practice

1. Pitch Boot Camp

This Event Run By the Scriptwriters Network Requires A Separate
$19.95 Registration Fee, Even For Gold Pass Holders

(A Platinum Pass, if offered, may include Pitch Boot Camp)  


Pitch Boot Camp is a two-hour guided session in which you role-play both sides of a script pitch table -- as the producer listening to pitches and as the writer giving your pitch.  It's an opportunity to practice pitching generally, or practice the particular pitch(es) you plan to give at the Expo, and to gain some understanding of what it is like to be on the other side of the table  -- an extremely valuable way to learn pitching mistakes to avoid.  

Pitch Boot Camp is run by the non-profit Scriptwriters Network in cooperation with Creative Screenwriting and the Expo staff. 

Registration Details: This Is Not A "Gold Pass" Event:

Three sessions of Pitch Boot Camp have been scheduled; tickets are limited to 30 tickets per session.  Even if you have a Gold Pass, you will need to sign up and pay the separate Pitch Boot Camp fee to attend Pitch Boot Camp. Your ticket will be good only for the particular Pitch Boot Camp session you registered for.  Cancellations will be accepted through Sept. 30, 2011, and you may swap tickets with anyone on site.  

Missed session: If you miss your sheduled 2011 Pitch Boot Camp session, your ticket does not guarantee you a seat in a later session, but it will be accepted in a later 2011 session if and only if there is room. No refunds are issued if you missed your session and there is no room in a later session.

2. Pitch Repair With Gary Shusett

Sherman Oaks Experimental College will hold a special Thursday session which complements Pitch Boot Camp: founder Gary Shusett, who is famous for being able to repair a pitch by hearing it once, will give a special class Thursday, Sept. 15  (tentatively at 12:30 p.m. --check the schedule for the final time).  This is a Sherman Oaks College session, not an Expo session.  It requires a separate admission, but the admission fee is only $10.
