Pitching

You will first need to identify and research:

  • What is a pitch? What does it consist of? What information needs to be included?
  • What is a treatment? What does it consist of? What information needs to be included?

You now need to write a pitch and treatment for your film/script. Consider the following:

  • Use persuasive language
  • What is your unique selling point?
  • Is it well planned and thought out? (You could gain feedback from your peers)
  • Provide sufficient detail
  • Have an exciting introduction to grab attention
  • Will the reader continue to be interested?
  • Make a bold statement to draw the listener in
  • Address the main issue and state your position – this is called an opening statement
  • Ask rhetorical questions
  • You are using persuasive writing – this uses mainly present tense
  • Use powerful verbs, strong adjectives by using emotive language
  • Use key points
