  • You are wasting your time in a pitch meeting if you do not have more than one project to pitch.
  • Your pitch is not going to be good the first dozen times you try it out. Go out there and pitch and use the rejection to make it better.
  • Don't hold back, try to enthrall everyone you can with your amazing idea. Writers mope around and think. Producers pitch, test your concepts out on everyone.
  • You have seconds to hook your audience. Make it short and make it count.
