Allen here with Stage 32! For those of you that don't know me, I’m the coordinator for Stage 32's writing services and earlier this month I hosted a FREE webinar with fellow Stage 32 crew Nick Assunto, where we discussed all things pitching.

We see hundreds of projects pitched on Stage 32 and review the feedback execs give on all of them. We see the good, the bad, and everything in between. We see what gets read and what gets the dreaded pass. What lands on the top of the pile and what gets buried under everything else. And we see the questions about pitching that get asked week in and week out. So we decided to put all that experience together and share what we’ve learned.


In case you missed it, you can still catch the webinar completely FREE - just click here and sign up!

While the webinar was an amazing opportunity to get the information out to you all and interact with the community in a live Q&A, the video format isn’t the best medium for all situations. That’s why we also developed the NEW Stage 32 Pitching Guidebook, which we released day and date with the webinar, completely FREE to Stage 32 writers.

This resource covers everything we discussed in the webinar, so you can go through the information at your own pace, or reference just a single section without having to find the right timestamp on a video.


The NEW Stage 32 Pitching Guidebook


In the Pitching Guidebook, you’ll learn about everything that goes into both verbal and written pitches including:

  • Introducing yourself and your relationship to the story.
  • Giving the specs on your project.
  • Constructing a logline that sells your story.
  • Explaining a unique setting, world or rules.
  • Introducing your characters.
  • Telling your story.
  • Outlining your TV series
  • Pitching tips and tricks.


So what are you waiting for? Click here to download the NEW Stage 32 Pitching Guidebook, or find it on the sidebar of any of our pitching pages.
