Speed Pitching: Pitch to Production Presented by Tello Films, Part 1
A fun and interactive workshop geared toward helping writers get their ideas out of their heads and into a successful pitch. Having a good idea is one thing, but getting it sold, developed, shot, picked up and on the air is like winning the lottery. And it all starts with the pitch! Tello Films and ClexaCon strive to support upcoming filmmakers and writers who want to make content for our community.
Participants at this workshop will receive some helpful pitching tips before the workshop. ‘Writers,’ chosen at random, will have three and a half minutes to pitch their idea to professional writers, creators and producers on the panel. The panel will give provide helpful development notes to expand their pitch. (Attendees do not have to be a part of the contest to attend workshop.)
Finalists will move on to Pitch to Production Presented by Tello Films Part 2 for chance to win a production deal with Tello Films.
