Success Stories: JUL'7 Pitching my pants off.

Pitching my pants off.

So two weeks ago, I realized I wasn't going to make a trip to L.A. this summer and Lee Jessup follow her if you don't told me she felt my current project was worth pitching on the Happy Writers site. I didn't even know what it was. But what the hell, I wasn't making the trip I usually make to take meetings and make connections. I got my pitch to a tight 4 minutes and I signed up for 12 different sessions over two weeks. They were fun and easy, though the first few were nerve wracking, and except for one epic fail pitch I ended up with 10 script requests for my original drama pilot out of 12 sessions. Not sure what the average ratio is, but that seems pretty good to me. Hopefully the script is as good as the pitch and some positive things come out of it - just making some great connections has been worth it. I'll let you guys know if anything happens. Thanks Joey!

Awesome, Kevin! What did you cover in your pitch, if you don't mind me asking? I've never done that before.

Kevin T. Morales

A bit hard to answer that Rebecca. If you're really curious, send me a message and I'll send you a link to where you can see it. I recorded it to get some feedback from folks.

Ana Frederick

Congratulations Kevin! That's a FANTASTIC ratio :)

Hallah Shepard

Kevin! Just read your fantastic entry here. Would you be so kind as to forward the link to your recorded pitch? I have been using the written pitch (with a 50% hit rate) because I was all over the map for the 8-minute Skype pitch...twice ! Thanks. Hallah Shepard

Beulah Jones
