DELIVERING A WINNING PERFORMANCE: PITCHING

Pitches aren’t just regular presentations – they’re performances. In this module, we’ll look at all of the elements of a winning pitch performance, including:
Theme – the reason to win
Story – elements, structure, types
“Screenplay” (the deck) – process for collaborative writing and tips on writing powerfully (memory, visuals, etc.)
S.t.a.r. – giving the audience “something they’ll always remember”
Casting – individually and collectively
Staging – fundamentals of position, room setting, technology
Rehearsal – blocking vs. dress rehearsal, degrees of rehearsal, preparing for Q&A
A delivery – very brief overview on the basics (voice, eyes, etc.), deconstructing authenticity
