Film pitch: Writing from an armchair
Read the above synopsis! It’s from an already released movie (albeit straight to DVD). Dull right?
Now, i am trying to write an elevator pitch to sell my film idea and everywhere i read it says that this my be as airtight as an astronaut’s bumhole. That i understand as i have to sell it to people with a 5 second attention span which leads me back to this curious piece of salesmanship.
If this was presented as a film pitch i am sure the writer would get a punch in the face from the Studio Head unless the pitcher of this was David Mamet then you know it’s backed up with talent. Peter Kaye (equally talented) is doing that with Car Share about (wait for it!) two people who car pool to work.
Being famous is no reason to be complacent… oui?
