If you have a script that you feel is ready to go out to the market and you've prepared a professional pitch, Stage 32 provides you a unique way to get feedback and hone your pitch (film or TV) directly with a variety of development executives, producers and managers. You will be rated by your Pitch Delivery/Format, Clarity of Pitch, Set up of Protagonist(s) & World, Obstacles & Conflict, Clarity of Tone, Originality of Concept and Strength of Voice.
You will pitch directly to the executive listed live over Skype or phone, or by way of a written pitch, and receive feedback from them.
Stage 32 Pitch Sessions are for educational evaluation purposes only.
You may only pitch ONE project per reservation, NOT portfolios.
You must have a completed script available for the project you pitch.
Do not reach out to the executives unless directed by Stage 32. They do NOT accept unsolicited material or appreciate being cold-called/emailed by strangers. Doing so will forfeit your right to participate in future sessions.
Missed reservations are not refundable and will not be rescheduled.
Within 15 minutes of your scheduled pitch, the executive will reach out by Skype or Phone. Your pitch session will last approximately 8 minutes.
Written Pitches will be no more than 2 pages submitted as a PDF or WORD document. Any written pitch uploaded past the deadline will not be shown to the executive and will result in a non-refundable forfeiture of your pitch.
Within 3-4 weeks of your pitch session, you will receive a Pitch Scorecard on which the executive you pitched will provide you ratings on the 7 categories, plus provide you written feedback on your pitch. So you understand where your pitch fits in the marketplace, you will also receive a standard industry PASS or REQUEST.
Sometimes, to give more comprehensive feedback, an executive may want to read your material. If so, you will see REQUEST on your scorecard.
If you see REQUEST, you will be notified via email with further instructions. The executives will have 2-3 months to review the material you submit. At the end of the review period, they will provide you a second set of written feedback about the material, plus an industry standard PASS or MEET. If a meeting is requested and they'd like to provide further feedback on your project, we will introduce you via email.
Please understand that these are working executives, and their schedules are subject to change at a moment's notice. We always strive to give you at least 24 hours of notice if a session has been cancelled, and we will recommend another executive for you to get pitch feedback from.
