How to Pitch a Killer Idea

Close up of a notepad on a knee

Have you written a script for a TV series, film, or an idea for a documentary? Are you finding it difficult to pitch this to studios and production companies?

This session will explore the ways in which creators can put their best ideas forward in a pitch that makes a production company sit up. You will get an insight into how key relationships are made, who the key people are to seek out at a production company and how you can show your added value in your treatments and pitches. 
There will be an opportunity for questions. 

The panel will be hosted by BBC Studios.
