Everyone pitching must be at the Script & Story Pitch-a-thon planned at 9:45AM on October 11th 2024.
THE FIRST PITCHES WILL START PROMPTLY AT 10:00AM!  All pitchers must be OUTSIDE the meeting room in the hallway.
We have 13 companies so far – each will be at their own table in the room.  The first group of 13 'pitchers' scheduled for 10:00AM will be allowed into the room PRECISELY AT 10:00AM and find the table of their distributor.
A signal will be given to 'start', and you will have 5 minutes to pitch to that distributor -- A SIGNAL WILL END THE FIVE MINUTES, and you MUST STOP PITCHING, thank the distributor, leave the table and head outside.  
At that time, we will allow the next group of 13 to enter the room, find their distributor, and start pitching on the signal to start.  This will repeat every 7 minutes until we have cycled through all the slots distributors have. 
As soon as one group is in the room, we will line up the next group at the door.  Be at the entrance door at least 7 minutes BEFORE each of your pitch times, or you could lose your scheduled pitch.  Stay close – the times are approximate, and we have gotten ahead of schedule in the past.  Also, sometimes people don’t show up for their pitch time, and we will grab the closest person wanting an additional pitch to take that slot.
Your five minutes will pass quickly.  We suggest you have a 2-3 minute pitch that will catch their interest.  Then spend the last two minutes getting feedback.  Pitch only ONE project, unless they ask what else you have.
You can show them a video clip if you have a trailer or other short video. But practice your pitch so it all works into your timeframe.  DO NOT DEPEND ON THE HOTEL INTERNET HOOKUP FOR SERVICE.  If you have video to use, have it pre-loaded on your device and ready to display.
A one-page leave-behind, or a business card, should be plenty.  If you show video, that one-pager should include a link to that. 
No matter what happens, PLEASE SHOW RESPECT AND GRATITUDE TO THE COMPANIES.  They are donating two hours of their time to take pitches from you.  They don't have to do that.  But they want to help give you the experience of pitching to a REAL distributor, the way it often happens in the film & TV world.  And you might get a partner for your film!  No matter what, it’s a valuable experience and a new relationship for you.
