MASTERCLASS: The Art of the Pitch

 

Overview

Do you have an idea bigger than “Game of Thrones” or “The Voice”?  Wanna be the new Shonda Rhimes or Ryan Murphy? Think you’re ready to run your own hard-boiled procedural or sexy soap?

Well, there’s something you gotta do first… PITCH IT.

“The Art of the Pitch” is designed to whip your TV idea - and pitching skills - into shape so you can slam dunk Singapore’s next hit series.

A 2-day masterclass dedicated to tweaking your idea, organising your pitch, and honing your selling skills. Whether you’re working on tomorrow’s hit sitcom or the next "Singapore Idol", we’ll whip your idea into shape… then give you a chance to pitch it to some of the industry’s top power players.

That’s right, this masterclass ends with a “Pitch Fest” where you’ll pitch to our panel of producers, writers, and executives from Singapore’s local TV industry!

Selling your first show - or your second - is never easy.  But with this masterclass… it just got a helluva lot easier.
