READY TO SELL YOUR SCRIPT?
Or wanting to write a script that will sell? This is the ideal way to prepare.
An award-winning writer-director in his own right, Charles Harris cuts through the many myths and misunderstandings and makes the process of pitching and selling a natural, enjoyable and vital part of your craft.
Two full days on pitching and selling your script for cinema, TV single drama or series, with practical, personal feedback whatever your level.
What producers are really looking for in film and TV, debunking the myths, how to find an agent, how to sell in the UK, Europe and Hollywood, query letters, leave-behinds and the whole two days focused on helping you improve your pitch.
Creating an informal, fun and supportive environment, he gives all the members of this select workshop individual advice and feedback throughout.
Everything is geared to giving you the practical tools to take your ideas to market with integrity, whether film, TV single drama or series...
...From knowing the marketplace and developing your individual pitch, to making the deal.
There are many selling and pitching workshops around, but none of them give you the intensive personal time, teaching and feedback that Charles does.
Finished script or just starting out, these two lively days will get you fired up, confident and ready to go.
Whatever your needs, Charles will tool you up to do your scripts justice, and give you the confidence to pitch with ease in any situation.
Participants have gone on pitch successfully to agents and producers, including BBC Drama, Warner Brothers and Curtis Brown, to win second place in the Cannes Pitching Competition, to sell theirs scripts and have them made for cinema and TV.
Be prepared to have your skills seriously expanded.
He has sat on Bafta awards juries, lectured at universities, film schools and international film festivals and taught selling and pitching to writers, directors and producers across Europe. His book Teach Yourself: Complete Writing Course is recommended reading on MA courses.
