How to Pitch Your Story or Script to Entertainment Decision Makers

If you hope to see your book or script on the big screen, you first have to ask yourself why someone should want to invest millions of dollars into you and your story, says author, writer, and producer Joel Eisenberg. During this process, you have to get out of your comfort zone, develop a thick skin, and approach executives in an authentic manner. For example, if you happen to be in an elevator with Steven Spielberg, Eisenberg believes the worst thing you could say is, “I have a script you would love.” Instead, say something he wouldn’t expect. Grab an executive’s attention by starting a human interaction, and see where that takes you.
