Fever pitch

Following my phone interview with Amy and Ami of Writer's Arc yesterday, I have now pitched a grand total of five ideas to persons in the Hollywood industry. Which, considering that is five more than I had pitched before the call, is something of a milestone for me. A romantic comedy, family comedy, superhero/action idea, sports drama, and drama/character study. I tried to show a broad range of possible scripts on which I could work if accepted.

I don't know if I will ever be comfortable with or bring myself to like pitching. I always think my ideas read better than I could ever explain them orally. But they complemented me on my first-time presentation, which I took as a good sign. And the rest of the chit-chat about me and where I'm coming from in terms of the program also seemed to go well. They plan on announcing the fellows next Monday, December 19. The ball is out of my hands now.

  • Good luck to ALL. Embrace pitching, love it. It too, is storytelling.

  • I'm sure you did great! Fingers crossed for you, writergurl and Matt H....everyone else, I remain ambivalent. :-)

  • I agree with Chris - pitching is a necessary evil, learn to love it.

    Of course, I've never pitched anything ever so the very thought of it makes my insides curdle.

    Best of luck for the 19th.
