It’s the meeting that can lead to stardom and dreams of an Oscar…or returning home to slave away in obscurity for another few months. It’s the pitch, the screenwriter’s equivalent of speed dating. Over the five minutes you’re allotted, you have to sell a story idea to a busy studio executive who regularly turns down dozens of scripts every day. You’ve got to prove to that person across the desk that your idea is wildly fresh, massively entertaining, and most of all, a potential blockbuster hit. See how students in our LA writing program get the chance to hone their skills before they drive onto the lot.
