This workshop teaches the importance of creating a pitch bible for television, film, or a web-series. A pitch bible is a creative and sales tool that writers/creators use to fully develop and pitch projects to networks, production companies and, in some cases, investors.
Presenter Squeaky Moore will lead this workshop to explore all of the elements that make up a winning pitch bible. Topics covered will include developing the log-line, premise, overview, characters, genre, mood/tone, story arc, episodes and/or structure and how to create a bible that stands out from the rest. Case studies of winning bibles will examine what works and why.
Squeaky Moore is regarded as the pitch guru for content creators and freelances as a development consultant and pitching coach. Moore’s recent directing and producing credits include 64, a project about absentee fathers that she executive produced and assist directed, and Father’s Day?, also produced by Moore, which addresses the same issue and debuted on Magic Johnson’s Aspire TV Network. Other credits include The Positive Controversy, a show which Moore developed and for which she is the show-runner, and Face of Darkness - Journey to Healing, a documentary film that explores depression and suicide in the African-American communities. Moore is author of #100Pitches: Mistakes, I’ve Made So You Don’t Have To, a film and television pitching guide for independent content creators about the do’s and don'ts, and strategies of pitching television and film projects.
