from idea to pitch
Take the abstract concept of your show out of your imagination and format it into a pitch presentation.
FirstLight is a 1-day intensive seminar led by a Catalyst partner industry executive, producer, or festival programmer that gives creators an in-depth approach to creating a pitch presentation for your show. Topics covered: an overview of what information to include in your pitch, formatting methods, character overviews, and more information to ensure your pitch is ready for presenting to potential buyers.
