Pitch Katie Politanoff

Katie is looking for all genres of feature screenplays under $10MM EXCEPT horror, raunchy comedies and superheroes. She is especially interested in character-driven features with a positive message. 

 


THE GOOD SHEPHERD, produced by Andy Fraser

 

A Really Good Home Pictures is the production outfit of veteran Producer Andy Fraser. They have begun to aggressively expand their development slate and are actively seeking writers and stellar screenplays for production.

Katie Politanoff has worked in the entertainment industry for more than nine years. She started her career at Morgan Creek Productions (THE EXORCIST, THE THING, THE GOOD SHEPHERD) before joining Vince Vaughn's production company, Wild West Picture Productions as a Creative Executive. While at Wild West, she worked on projects like "F Is For Family" (Bill Burr, Laura Dern), TERM LIFE (Vince Vaughn, Bill Paxton, Hailee Steinfeld), and "Undeniable with Joe Buck".

In June 2016, Katie partnered with producer Andy Fraser at A Really Good Home where she is excited to bring their slate of feature films to the big screen. They are set to release GOD BLESS THE BROKEN ROAD, directed by Harold Cronk (GOD'S NOT DEAD 1 & 2), in 2018, and are in development on UNSTOPPABLE, a biopic of Anthony Robles' rise to becoming the 2011 NCAA Wrestling Champion, despite being born with only one leg.

Tips on pitching to Katie Politanoff

  • Stray from raunchy jokes.
  • Don't use movies that weren't successful or didn't make money as comparisons.

Guidelines

  • You may only pitch ONE project per reservation. Execs are looking for projects they can develop, NOT portfolios.
  • You should have a completed script available upon request 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.
  • Missed reservations are not refundable and will not be rescheduled.

Live Pitches

Within 15 minutes of your scheduled pitch, the exec will reach out by Skype or Phone. Your pitch session will last approximately 8 minutes.

Written Pitches

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.

Scorecards

Within 3-4 weeks of your pitch session, you will receive a Pitch Scorecard on which the exec you pitched will provide pitch feedback and note if they are PASSing, or would like to REQUEST your material.

If you are requested, you will be notified via email with further instructions. The execs will have 2-3 months to review your material and note if they are PASSing, or would like a MEETING. If a meeting is requested, 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 pitch your material to.
