With each passing year, original streaming content becomes more and more popular. As filmmakers, we are all secretly (or not so secretly) vying for a coveted slot on the golden geese of streaming: Netflix and Amazon. So, how do you pitch your project to Netflix or Amazon?

Stage 32 founder and CEO, Richard Botto, answers this question thoroughly and frankly in his free webinar, "Ask Me Anything". 

The head of Netflix television programming reportedly hears roughly 60 pitches a week. Before you call in all your favors and trip over yourself to procure one of these unicorn pitch meetings - you need to ask yourself a few questions: 

  1. Why you? Why this project?
  2. Why do audiences need this project now
  3. What value are you bringing? 

Set yourself up for success by answering these questions honestly.
