The ins and outs of pitching your idea.
At the Austin Film Festival’s annual Pitch Competition, I have been a finalist six times, and four of those times I have placed in the top three. Most screenwriters haven’t had the opportunity to also be trained in improvisation like I have — and that’s the difference. My vast 10-plus years of experience as a performer and teacher of improv (to hundreds of individuals and companies like Google, Whole Foods and Dell) coupled with my work as a writer and screenplay analyst have given me the skills to comfortably pitch stories to any number of individuals for any length of time.
I can teach you how to find the heart of your story and thus the heart of your pitch, as well as how to read your audience and adjust on the fly, be more relaxed and confident, manage your fear and anxiety (and not the other way around), and ultimately be your own, true, passionate self.
