Charles Harris con Jaws in Space : Powerful Pitching for Film & TV Screenwriters (Creative Essentials)

Two screenwriters once walked into a Hollywood producer's office and said three words 'Jaws in space.' Those three words won them the contract for the blockbuster movie Alien.

The ability to pitch well is essential for all writers, directors and producers in cinema and TV. Strong pitching skills will accelerate your career not only helping you sell your projects, but also developing them in the first place, focusing on what makes a story work, clarifying character and plot and working more successfully with industry collaborators.

This book takes you from the essentials of what makes a good pitch to advanced skills that will help you in all kinds of pitching situations. Charles Harris gives a clear-sighted view of how pitching works in the industry and a series of very practical techniques for developing a gripping and convincing pitch. Drawing on his experience, he examines the problems that can arise with both mainstream and unconventional projects - from a range of different cultures - and explains how to solve them. He also analyses the process of taking a pitch meeting and shows you how to ensure you perform at your best.

Author Charles Harris has written and directed for BBC and Channel 4, creating internationally award-winning documentaries and TV drama. The book uniquely covers not only conventional mainstream projects but also a wide range of other styles and cultures.
