Whether to a publisher, a TV network, a studio, or a production company, your work won't sell itself. Pitching is more than just telling the plot of your comic book, graphic novel, television or movie idea.  In an extremely short amount of time you must convey the nature of your project, get the listener emotionally invested in the story, and explain why your Property deserves to be developed instead of hundreds of others. The panelists will walk you through the six parts of a good pitch, with practical advice on how to be clear and compelling.
