Pitching next week
Our screenwriting instructor Paul Castro is arranging a "pitch session" where we have 2-3 minutes to pitch our script to "a mysterious guest." I have no idea who it could be, but he does have connections. I have to put my pitch together in the next couple of days, then know it well enough that I can deliver it while the rest of the class throws balled up pieces of paper at me...

Reminds me of Kermit pitching his broadway show to the producers. Good luck Kermie!

literally throwing stuff at you?

that sounds pretty scary, actually--but if anyone can do it, you can!

um, when I had to present something to a class of potential hecklers at school, I always took a bag of candy that I could throw at them (a piece at a time). Bite size snickers seem particularly effective. It always amused the prof. Don't know what to think about having an actual professional present. Few people don't like chocolate though. Once saw an pitch meeting between Aerosmith and an MTV exec regarding getting airplay for their latest music video. They took giant clear garbage bags filled with fake money. Hard to go wrong with humor.
