FAQ

How do I write a pitch/logline?

In all my years working in Hollywood, the best pitches I’ve seen have used the following structure:

1. Logline (a logline is a short, powerful pitch for your idea summed up in a short paragraph).

2. Synopsis (a more detailed outline of your story).

3. A short bio of who you are (list any experience that you think is necessary, include and any awards/accomplishments you’ve achieved).

Alternatively, for $49 we can write your pitch for you.

Can you write my pitch for me?

We would be happy to write your pitch for you. But before we can proceed, we just need to get the following information from you:

1) Title of your movie/TV show idea.
2) Genre (i.e., drama, comedy, thriller, romance, horror, etc.)
3) What your story is about (i.e., a brief synopsis)
4) Some information about yourself (please mention, where possible, any notable achievements, writing experience, or interesting things you have done).

Once we have received this information, we can begin work on your pitch for you.

<< finally, you will need to send us a payment of US $49.00. Please contact us for more information >>

If you have any questions or need any further assistance, please let us know and we will be more than happy to help.

If I use your service am I guaranteed to be successful?

Nothing is guaranteed in this life, especially in this industry. But what is guaranteed is that if you write a great pitch we can give you the best shot at success out there.

However, it must be noted that our service only puts you in touch with Hollywood executives, producers and production companies. The ultimate decision for whether you are successful or not lies with the studios/producers. At any one time, studios and producers may or may not be accepting new idea. This varies month to month and according to market demand.

Do you send my pitch to studios and producers directly?

Where possible we send your pitch to studios and producers directly. However, in some cases (where staff leave before we have a chance to update our database or we can’t get a direct contact) your query will be directed to the main submissions email address of the studio/production company.

What if I receive a response that a company is no longer accepting unsolicited material?

This might happen occasionally. We try our best to vet these responses out, but production companies and studios can change their policies on a monthly basis (depending upon how busy they are or if they are actively looking for clients that month).
