ScriptFest and the Great American PitchFest are just two weekends away. This event is a great opportunity for writers, and we are big fans.
The ScriptFest portion in particular is a must-attend event for any aspiring screenwriter. You’ll have the chance to attend classes all day long from some of the most sought-after teachers out their — Danny Manus, Chris Soth, Pilar Alessandra, Steve Kaplan, Whitney Davis, and our very own John Bucher, to name a few.
And the next day, you’ll have the chance to pitch to over 120 different companies, including managers, agents, and producers. Odds are you won’t get your big break at a pitch fest, but you will get a great opportunity to meet other writers, practice pitching, and hopefully make some great industry contacts. And you never know — the Great American PitchFest has a few success stories every year.
To help you get there, you can take 10% off any ScriptFest ticket package with the code LASCREENWRITER10 if you buy on or before 6/15.
We also want to help you get your pitches ready, so…
Everyone who purchases a Logline Polish or Logline Creation from us by 6/19 will be entered into a drawing to win a free Bronze Pass to ScriptFest!
With our logline services, I work with you directly to come up with the best possible logline for your project. I also provide some guidance on your idea and my thoughts on how you might move forward with the project. Learn more here.
I look forward to helping you improve your pitch and, hopefully, to seeing you at ScriptFest!
