How I Sell the Pitch will provide a pitch guide for independent creators to help present original series ideas to Animation Producers and Networks. Pitching animated shorts and series is different from live action. This discussion focuses on the business of the meeting, the basic do’s and dont’s covering what to bring, what to leave, and follow up to the pitch. After the presentation we will retreat to the “Shop Talk Lounge” to carry on the conversation and have Q+A.
