Do you have an idea for an original show? Or perhaps a studio has asked you to share your vision for an existing concept? So, where do you start? The Path to Pitching will offer more than just how to get the opportunity to pitch and nail it. Industry veterans Violaine Briat (Director/Storyboard Artist; Wings of Fire, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse), Rob Hoegee (Writer/Producer; Stillwater, Thunderbirds Are Go), and Jorge Gutierrez (Writer/Director; I, Chihuahua, Maya and the Three) will share their own experiences to take you on the pitching journey. Beginning with how to prepare, you’ll learn inside tips on getting your ideas ready for a close-up. You’ll also learn dos and don’ts for making connections that are right for your project, and receive practical advice.
