Elevator Pitch

Imagine you step into an elevator. It will take half a minute to reach the lobby. There’s only one other person in the elevator with you — it is George Lucas or Bill Gates or someone else rich and powerful.

You have half a minute to convince that person to give you a job… or to give you $100-million dollars to make your movie or television series. But you only have 30 seconds to “sell the idea” (or sell yourself as the case may be).

ELEVATOR PITCH 1

For this week’s class (April 22), I’d like each of you to prepare an ELEVATOR PITCH for your favorite movie/tv show. Make believe your favorite movie/tv show has never existed. You have to explain the idea in half a minute and convince this person to give you the $100-million to make your dream come true.

ELEVATOR PITCH 2

For next week’s class (April 29), each of you should create an ELEVATOR PITCH for your own idea. This could be an idea for a video you’d like to make in class next year. Or it could be a big-budget movie that you would dream of working on.
