Happy Writers Pitch Sessions

Stage 32 offers a unique way to pitch your feature or pilot screenplay directly to executives throughout the industry, including managers, agents, creative executives and founding partners. This is the most direct way you will find to get your material in front of the influencers and decision makers throughout the entertainment industry. You will pitch directly to the executive listed. You will never pitch to anyone other than the executive you signed up for.

Not only does Stage 32 provide access to executives who otherwise may not accept unsolicited material, we also provide industry leading feedback on the story you're pitching, and on the pitch itself directly from the executive you pitched to.

Stage 32 offers pitching live, face-to-face with the executives over Skype, and written submissions which are two pages max. There is a limit to how many pitches any executive can review, so be sure to sign up before they sell out.

PLEASE REVIEW THE FOLLOWING GUIDELINES

  • Only participate in these sessions if your material is completely ready to be seen by executives.
  • All listed dates and times are Pacific Standard time (PST - Los Angeles, CA) unless otherwise noted.
  • These pitch sessions are with active, working executives, please make sure your pitch is fully prepared and up to professional standards.
  • If you are pitching live, you will receive a call from us. Do NOT call our skype or phone number for your session. We will reach out to you.
  • You may only pitch ONE project PER reservation. This includes written pitches.

PLEASE NOTE: Stage 32 Happy Writers has an agreement with the individuals listening to Stage 32 member pitches. These companies do NOT accept unsolicited material. Do not reach out to the executives directly as they do not accept unsolicited material. Please do not try to contact the industry professional (“Executive”) before or after the pitch UNLESS you are specifically asked to.

SKYPES AND WRITTEN PITCHES

Live sessions are done over Skype or telephone. Sessions done over Skype are face-to-face with executives using a webcam. These sessions are 8 minutes long, and you will receive a verbal warning when there are 2 minutes left. We recommend keeping your pitch to 4-6 minutes to allow room for questions and answers at the end.

If you are outside of the U.S., you must use Skype as we do not place phone calls internationally. When signing up for an executive, choose your preferred time and sign up. You will receive a follow up email from us with complete instructions. Make sure you are online or by the phone at the scheduled time of your live pitch. Please note that there may be a delay of up to 10 minutes during sold out and/or busy sessions. If you are experiencing technical difficulties during your session, please contact assistant@Stage32.com

Written submissions are two pages maximum (NO EXCEPTIONS) and must be submitted as a PDF or WORD document. Please include your full name and email address in the upper-right hand corner of your written pitch. All written material must be uploaded NO LATER than 30 minutes before the scheduled start of the session via the dropbox link you will receive after signing up. Any material uploaded past this deadline will not be shown to the executive and will result in a non-refundable forfeiture of your pitch.

SCORECARDS & FEEDBACK

Within 14 days of your pitch session, you will receive a Stage 32 scorecard filled out by the executives (please allow for up to 3 weeks for sold out and/or busy sessions). On it, the executive will note if they are PASSing, or if they would like to REQUEST your material. This scorecard will also include feedback on your pitch and the story you pitched. 

Please remember that feedback is not personal. It is an honest accounting of the executive's reaction to your material. Executives have tastes and opinions like anyone else. A common adage in the entertainment industry is "look for the note behind the note", and we encourage writers who use our services to do the same.

IF YOU ARE REQUESTED

If you are requested, one of our Stage 32 Coordinators will notify you via email. You have 72 hours from receiving the REQUESTED BY email to reply with your material. Please send your material in PDF format. Ancillary material not specifically requested by the executive (i.e., lookbooks, treatments, letters of interest, outlines, etc.) will not be sent to the executive.

The executives have 2-3 months to review your material and get back to us with a second completed scorecard. This will include feedback on your script and include either a PASS or REQUEST. If you are requested a second time, you will be introduced to the executive via email.

PLEASE NOTE:

Missed reservations are not refundable and will not be rescheduled. These are active, working executives with strict schedules to maintain.

If you are requested, you must reply with your material within 72 hours of the request. Material received past this deadline will not be sent to the executive and your pitch will be considered forfeited without a refund.

If you have any additional questions email WriterHelp@Stage32.com.
