Do you have an idea for a television show or movie, but you’re not sure what to do next?
In this three-hour workshop, Neil Garguilo will help guide you through the long, inconsistent, often frustrating, but very necessary process of TV and movie development and pitching.
The workshop will be broken into two areas: 1) Development: How do I start the process? What materials do I put together? How do I get my project out into the world?; and 2) Pitching: Once I do get in the room, what should I expect?
In an often difficult and highly competitive business, make sure you are prepared when opportunities arise!
