Yesterday, over 70 Producers Guild members along with another 150 online from around the world participated in the first day of the Stage 32 / Producers Guild Women's Impact Network Pitch to W.I.N. event to promote and shine a light on female-centric projects.

 

An Inspiring Day


The day started with a lively 2-hour panel regarding the state of the industry, productive networking practices and how to best pitch a project. The panel featured (l to r):

  • Moderated by Carrie Lynn Certa (PGA & W.I.N. Committee Member)
  • (Yours truly) RB Botto, Founder & CEO, Stage 32
  • Joey Tuccio, President, Stage 32 Happy Writers
  • Stephanie Wilcox, VP of Development at Rumble Films
  • Jennifer Breslow, VP of Scripted Series, Lifetime
  • Mara Tasker, Associate Producer, VICE Media
  • Tiffany Boyle, VP of Packaging & Sales for Ramo Law

 

After the panel, the producers in attendance met individually with 7 Stage 32 Happy Writers consultants on how to hone their pitches in preparation for the live pitching event next weekend. Many thanks to Erik Grossman, Erica Bardin, Cheryl Texiera, Lauren Fash, Stephanie Marin, Brandon Combs and Susan Graham for donating their time and sharing their expertise.
