AiF INDUSTRY PRESENTS
The Art of Pitching: With Mark Horowitz
Finding your way through the maze of Hollywood can be a daunting task for not only new-comers to the business, but also to experienced film-makers new to the town. What might have worked in Australia might not apply in Tinseltown. Veteran industry executive Mark Horowitz drops in to Charlie's to talk about how to craft your pitch to approach different people with different agendas, but all necessary to get your project into production. He will share his experiences and offer advice on what you can expect from these players, what they will expect from you, and when is the best time to approach them.
