If you have a script or reel that you feel is ready to go out to the market and you've prepared a professional pitch, Stage 32 Happy Writers provides you a unique way to pitch your script (film or TV) or reel directly to a variety of managers, agents, development executives or producers who will provide feedback and educational information regarding your pitch as well as your script should it be requested. The pitch sessions are designed to not only give you access to executives who normally have a no unsolicited material policy, but to provide you with information and educational tools as well.
For The Stage 32 Happy Writers pitch sessions, all writers will pitch directly to the executive listed. You will never pitch to anyone other than the executive you signed up for. Pitches are done either via Skype or by written submission. No matter where you live, anyone can pitch.
We pride ourselves on our commitment to help our writers better hone their crafts through the following services we offer when you pitch:
An In Depth Look Into Your Executive
The Stage 32 Happy Writers team works tirelessly to discover what material our executives are looking for and what tips we can provide when pitching with an executive. On each pitching page you will receive an in depth look into the executive, including their bio, what material they are looking for and tips on how best to pitch them. We do our best to match up writer’s material with executives who might be interested in such content.
Scorecards & Feedback
Because we want our pitch sessions to be educational and informational in addition to offering access, we are proud to be the only service to provide feedback on your written or Skype pitch, which comes directly the executive you pitch to. Being able to succinctly and effectively pitch your story is such a huge part of being a screenwriter and our scorecard and feedback will give you the information you need to improve your pitch each and every time.
Further, should your script be requested by an executive, you will also receive another scorecard and feedback from that executive. This is another informational and educational method designed to help identify the positives within your script along with items and areas where there might possibly be room for improvement. We’re very proud to be able to offer this feedback along with the pitching feedback as part of our pitching service.
Since a writer’s ability to pitch is always a key part to your career, we offer the following perks:
ABOUT THE PITCHING PROCESS
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 industry professional (“Pro”) before or after the pitch UNLESS you are specifically asked to. This is for the benefit for the Pro AND you as there is often a fine line between conducting oneself in a professional manner and not.
Please only participate in these sessions if your material is completely ready to be seen by executives. These are industry-standard professional pitching sessions so we expect you to be fully prepared. If you have questions or need help, don't hesitate to contact the Stage 32 Happy Writers team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All dates, times and locations for upcoming sessions. All times are Pacific Standard Time (PST - Los Angeles, CA) unless otherwise noted.
