Pitching is a crucial part of the entertainment business, and often a dreaded one for creators. But: No pitch, no deal!
In this session, ‘Versailles’ Co-Creator and Showrunner Simon Mirren will draw back the curtain to see how good stories can make great pitches. We will share anecdotes and dive into the universal skills and tools that help to ‘own the room’ and close the deal. A particular focus will be on the differences to pitch in the US versus Europe – and what to expect in both rooms.
So if you're going to pitch, this is the right session for you.
Simon Mirren has spent six years on US hit series ‘Criminal Minds’ culminating as showrunner and is now also a director on the show. He co-created and executive produced glossy Canal Plus drama ‘Versailles’ with David Wolstencroft. The show is currently shooting its third season.
