You've practiced your pitch over and over and you have the basics down of format and plot points to hit, but how do you take your pitch to the next level? Chris Deckard (Manager, Fictional Entity), host of Roadmap's most popular pitching webinar ever is back with Round Two on how to truly elevate your pitch!

Chris will go into the next steps to take to really hone your pitch including tips on how to match the tone of your pitch to the genre of the story. It's not enough to be able to be technically correct, you have to be able to engage your listener's emotions and demonstrate that you're a master storyteller so they'll be excited to see what you can do with a script!

Chris will also discuss how to think like an executive - if you can appreciate what an exec needs in order to successfully "upsell" your project to their superiors and buyers, you can better tailor your pitch to effectively appeal to an executive and stand out from everything else they are hearing/reading!
