Film pitch meet up. Get ready to pitch your film and or listen to others pitch their screenplays. We will talk a little bit about what we like in the pitches and if anything can be improved. This is a prctice session, but anyone interested in further devlopment can pitch their development idea as well. We will spend some time talking about choosing the right studio or manager to pitch. This is a prepatory meet up so you can fine tune your Stage 32 pitch session. It will help you decide weather you are better pitching directly with the executive through Skype, phone or by written submission. With Skype you will have 8 minutes to pitch your script or reel to the executive. We will work on perfecting the pitch and give perspective on how to have a back and forth with the executive you are pitching to. For written pitches, make sure your pitch is 1-2 pages max. We will start out with an introduction then your project title, movies to compare it to, genre, logline. Spend some time talking about y about yourself and then kick into the story. The rest is up yo you. Make your story sound comical, action filed, or gorry and horrific .This is a chance for Stage 32 writers to come together and make their better, more accessible and get it in to the studio. Anyone wanting to pitch their film or idea may do so and feel free to talk about past experiences. New writers welcome, experienced and successful screen writers are encouraged to share their experience. Their are several things to keep in mind when pitching. How to focus on the camera, project your self, and delivering the story to the agent or manager.
The UNITY Stage 32 meetup is to help industry professionals understand the Unity agreement. Unity is a new way of working in the film industry and reflects traditions that have been instilled by guilds and some unions. It is a collaborative effort to not only make films but distribute the wealth in film making. Unity takes advantage of peoples assets, financial alliances, personal dedication, and time investment.
The people involved in Unity are actors, cinematographers, costumers, directors, set designers, sound, special effects, make up, producers, and writers. The projects we work on are broken down in to segments that enable each person to select a time to engage in the project. This is used by most producers including Michael Bay if you look at the screen credts in the film Transformers.
Each crew is assembled according to availibity and sent to the studio to film a scene. Unity enables everyone to work together on a feature and get credit for the part that they worked on during the filming or editing of the movie production. In the credits you will see Camera Crew 1 followed by a list of names, Camera Crew 2 followed by a list of names, Digital Effects, etecetera all the way down to the most simple production teams.
This means you can recieve film credit on a major motion picture and work for 12 to 400 hours on the movie. The amount of time you work on the film is determined by the films need and your dedication. Unity is a way to not only recieve notable film creit but prosperous rewards as well. Dividends are payed to everyone involved in Unity. That means a check is sent out every four months to those working on the project once funding has exceeded cost.
Unity uses the Independent Film Fund, Crowdfunder, and direct personal investments along with pick up deals from the top Hollywood studios to make films that are incredible. We work with actors and talent that has proven ability and need to be Hollywood.
