In the first part of our multi-part series about tips for pitching and selling an animated series, we explored some of the fundamentals of setting up a pitch presentation, while in part two, we explored best practices for communicating ideas clearly.
In part three, we look at techniques for building trust with the audience to whom you’ll be pitching your ideas. Combined with the earlier advice, these tips and tricks will elevate your presentation to the next level.
As noted in the first couple sections, remember that pitching practices vary all over the world, so not every pitch tip will apply to every pitching situation. For example, in the United States, most animated series are not pitched at production forums in the presence of distributors and broadcasters. It’s vital to do your research beforehand and understand to whom you’ll be pitching your project and in what format. Although these tips are based on experiences at European markets specifically, you will find that most of the tips will be applicable to other pitching situations as well.
