In a few minutes we're off to pitch our mock rockumentary comedy I'M WITH THE BAND at the Just for Pitching event at Montreal's Hyatt Regency. It's Lisa's first pitching event -- really her first live pitch -- so we're excited.
It's a lot more fun pitching with two people than one. There's something exciting about one person jumping in where another person pauses. The whole thing just feels more dynamic.
Last year at Banff I memorized the whole pitch. But I think that took up way too much effort. We know our pitch pretty well off the page.
Meanwhile I'm pondering what to do with the rest of the summer. Stick around? Or head off back to the country? 'Cause this time of year you're either staffing a show in production, or kicking back your heels waiting for the network execs to come back to their desks from their
cottages. Might as well get out of Dodge. I'm waiting for a couple of deals to close so I can get to work on them. Until then I'm working on another spec feature...
Wish us luck at the pitch!
