Wednesday, February 13, 2019, 7:00pm

This event is in the past.

You've written a pilot, a feature, a musical, a play now what?

From producing Off Broadway to meeting with network executives in LA, award nominated filmmaker, director, producer and actress Jamie Monahan has learned some valuable information about the art of pitching.

Here's what students will learn during the six weeks:

-How to write a log line for your idea. -How to perfect your elevator pitch. -How to prepare for a pitch meeting. -Who to pitch to. -Pitching do's and don'ts. -How to protect your idea. -How to get a pitch meeting. -What buyers are looking for. -Learn what materials you will need to set your pitch apart. -Learn how to make a Pitch Deck/Show Bible.

Your final class you'll have the unique opportunity to pitch your project to producers in the industry and you'll have the confidence and materials to do it! We'll give you feedback on your pitch that'll set you up for success for future pitch meetings."

Please note: Students need to be prepared to "pitch" on day 1. This will be a great way to see where you are and how to specifically tailor the class to each project/person. We are looking for Film/TV and some Musical Theater/Theater.


"Jamie Monahan's Pitch Perfect seminar is a valuable investment, a rare, safe and welcoming space to learn how to express your ideas to the people who make decisions.  She has her finger on the pulse of what gets the results that grow from a meeting in a room."

The knowledge and experience she passed down in the class was invaluable and her positivity and support was an inspiration.  If they offer this class again, get. on. it!”

"Thank you so much for all that you have taught me in this class. I literally knew nothing! I wrote a script and had absolutely no idea of what the next step was supposed be. I now am able to talk about my show in a selling and professional way."

"Actors are often told to create their own content. If you've already written something and want to take things to the next level, Jamie Monahan's Pitch Perfect class will show there are many paths to take, and how to knock on the doors of opportunity. She brought out creativity in each one of us."
