Pitch Tips

Always start with the character first, any genre. For sci-fi you're going to have build the world. For Thriller it's all about those beats. Horror it's about the scares. Comedy the pitch should make you laugh. If it's a Drama, the character's emotional journey is just as important as the plot.
