Deadline for Pitch Summit IV Late Discount


Hey Michael,

Only 10 days left! August 17!

The LATE DEADLINE is almost here! Don’t miss the Friday, August 17 deadline to register and attend the InkTip Pitch & Networking Summit.

Go here to register:

See below for a list of why attending the Pitch & Networking Summit is a must.

  • Pitch & Networking Summit Details
  • Key Points to Consider

At the typical pitching event, you only pitch 10 to 15 companies and that's just not enough. We're focused on getting your scripts sold, so we’re changing the writer / company ratio so you pitch an average of 40 companies in a single day and for about the same price.

InkTip guarantees a 100% refund* if you're not completely satisfied with the experience.

This will sell out, so I wanted to make sure had a chance to attend. You can go here to register:

Some of the 500+ companies who are Summit clients:
  • Dream Factory Entertainment | deal with Paramount
  • Little Engine Productions | deal with ABC & Fox 
  • Trancas Int. LP Films | deal with Dimension Films
  • After Dark Films | deal with Lionsgate
  • Bogner Entertainment | deal with Fremantle Media North America
Let me know if you have any questions.

Jerrol LeBaron
CEO, InkTip

*requests for refunds must be made within 7 days after the Summit.
Five points to first consider:

A.  About how much time have you spent on query letters, calling people, networking, research, and so on, over the length of your writing career?

B.  How many viable relationships have you established with agency, management and production companies?

C.  How many months or years did it take to get these?

D.  Are you in the place you want to be with regards to your writing career?

E.  Is the above acceptable to you?

If not, please review the following:

Here are some key points about the Pitch & Networking Summit:

1.  At the Pitch & Networking Summit, you can personally meet and pitch about 30-35 of the more than 300 companies (production and management companies and agencies) who have the ability to make movies or get them into the right hands to get them made.

A lot of these companies have produced TV series' for the Networks, or made movies that had wide theatrical release. These are people who usually don't accept unsolicited material. In some cases, this is your only chance to meet them face to face.  You can see some of the companies that attended our last Summit listed here:

2.  There is a cocktail party immediately following the pitching. This is where screenwriters and producers, agents and managers will be able to mingle and network with each other. The cocktail party will last between 3 and 5 hours. Currently, the ratio of industry people (producers, agents and managers) to writers is about one-to-one for the pitching, and a lot of them will be hanging around for the party. Each of them is looking for writers and scripts.

When is the last time you went to a networking event that huge and with that many industry people open to hearing what you have to say - or that has that kind of writer-to-industry professional ratio?

3.  Only agencies, management, development people and production companies who are looking for writers and scripts right now are allowed to hear pitches.

4.  At the Pitch Summit, we only want writers who have, at some point in their careers, fully completed and polished at least one screenplay. The reason is simple. Accepting anybody with an idea "written on a napkin" puts the producer, agent or manager in the wrong frame of mind - and no writer should have to follow that act. We don't want your pitches falling upon deaf ears, thereby wasting your time.

5.  The industry people we invite to hear pitches are people whose job it is to find and read screenplays for possible production. They are NOT assistants in the accounting department or mailroom, who have no business hearing pitches.

6.  If we don't deliver what we promised, and if you request it within 7 days after the Pitch & Networking Summit, you can get a 100% refund. No other pitch event has ever been so sure of themselves and what they can do for writers as to make such an offer.

7.  This is also a great opportunity to meet and network with some of your own peeps (other talented up-and-coming writers).

8.  Anyone who registers for a VIP or Studio Pass can also (within 6 months of Summit) place one of their titles on the InkTip site. This alone is an added $60 value, as you already know. Studio Pass holders can also post their title in InkTip Magazine (3 months before listed title on site expires), an additional $40 value.

9. The Pitch & Networking Summit is the only pitching event confirmed to have led to feature films actually going into production!
