A Hands-On Approach to TV Drama

Chris Kappel

Sold Out - Waitlist Available

Let’s imagine you have this hour long drama pilot you’ve been slaving over for weeks, months, or even a year. Whether this is the first draft, or you’ve been through more drafts than you care to remember, you feel that you need some help to figure out how to take the pilot to the next level.

Take this two week course and get your pilot and pitch polished up in record time! Your instructor will read your full pilot prior to the first session, where you will receive story notes on your pilot and tips on how to most effectively pitch it. During the second session, you will pitch your project to your instructor for notes on polishing your verbal pitch!

In This Two Week Clinic, You Will:

  • Receive individual feedback on your pilot’s strengths and weaknesses
  • Learn how to pitch and market your pilot effectively 
  • Walk away with a stronger pilot and stellar pitch
