I'm not an expert in writing pitch decks. However, I never shy away from doing what needs to be done to help a producer or in some cases, myself to shop my screenplays. Fortunately, I am adept at putting together presentations, and grasping the importance of eye catching graphics and writing succinct, effective content. Last week, a producer I've frequently worked with sent me a pitch deck example he liked and was hoping I craft a deck for a script I wrote that he's pitching this week.
Though I liked the graphics of his example, I thought the content was way too long without providing readers a reason why the movie should be made. So I used the ideas I liked and also other ideas from two other pitch deck templates I have on file. I also added a Unique Selling Proposition (USP) to the presentation. The producer loved what I did and only had me change the order of the slides. And thankfully, his suggestions only strengthened the presentation. I intend to use pitch decks with more frequency.
If you're unfamiliar with PD's and how to format them, I've attached a link for a scriptmag article on how to do one.
