Do you have a movie you want to make? Or a screenplay that you want produced? Are you going to pitch a project to a studio executive, producer, name actor or private investor? Pitching means asking producers, name actors, and studio executives for help. No one pretends this is easy. "I’ve seen other filmmakers give presentations," says film producer/director/screenwriter Tom Marcoux, "Presentations that crashed and burned. But remember, people do this all the time, successfully. You can as well!" After gaining funds for a number of projects (one film went to the Cannes film market), Marcoux has compiled what worked and what didn't into this book. Much of it builds on his observations of dire mistakes, his own and others’. He alerts you to the Darkest Secrets of this process. More, you’ll find countermeasures. Problems that pop up and how to solve them. Traps and how they can be avoided. Dangers identified then nullified, the same way we change bad habits or wrong assumptions. When it comes to the vital skill of pitching your ideas, enrolling others into your vision, this book shows you the way.
