“The Art of Pitching” Sibylle Kurz’s presentation at ELTE

Written by film

How to make our project marketable?

Filmmakers and creative artists in the cultural and artistic fields must be able to convince financiers and supporters of their new ideas. This is called pitching, which is a daunting task for many, while for others it is a simple thing. Of course, the right personal skills are needed to make pitching as successful as possible. The good news is that all of this can be learned. The lecture deals with the components that help us pitch in a strong and convincing way, while the presentation is both concise and enjoyable.
