Need help with your elevator pitch?

March 27th, 2010 by

Okay, so you’re visiting L.A..Walking the streets. Spot Jerry Bruckheimer heading your way. You introduce yourself, “Mr. Bruckheimer, I ‘ve got a perfect action script for you.” And maybe it’s because he just heard from his business manager that his stock portfolio is up 22%… or the amateur hockey team he plays on won the BadBoysHockey tournament the night before… or he sees something in your eyes that says, C’mon, give the guy / gal a chance. Whatever the motivation, Jerry says, “Okay, what’s your story?”

You’ve got precisely 30 seconds to hook him.

What are you going to say?

What is your elevator pitch?

Maybe if you go here, you can get that pitch together.

    I love it! It's not just for writers, but for everyone who needs to quickly and efficiently sell themselves or their ideas to another person. Thanks for the link, Scott.

    No pitch, just the title …


    Think about it. Think about it.

    It's GOLD, Jerry, GOLD!

    "PJ, i loved what you did with the first three Lord of the Rings. Just think… if you did one more."

    "But the trilogy's over."

    "But what if it was a big set-up for… a quadrupligy?"
