Nelvana: We Love Your Pitch! Now What...
You came up with an idea for a show, spend countless hours developing it and crafting the perfect script & vision to pitch it. You’ve relentlessly rehearsed for the big pitch – memorizing every line, anticipating any question. The pitch comes, and they love it! ... Now what?!
Join Nelvana’s development team for an informative discussion on life after pitching – what to expect once your concept has been optioned and the steps it takes to turn your great pitch into a great show!
