If you’ve ever taken a class on pitching, you’ve probably heard a lot of conflicting information. Should you talk about yourself? Should you give away the ending? And how on earth are you supposed to tell your story in a succinct and clear way?

Seems like a lot to keep track of, doesn’t it? That’s why Bret Slater (Producer - SHOOTER, BALLERS, HOW TO MAKE IT IN AMERICA) is here to help us all really hone our pitching craft!

This 90 Minute Webinar Will Cover:

  • Who’s who and what their roles are
