From Michael Hauge, author of the Best Selling Udemy Screenwriting & Storytelling Course: Screenwriting and Story Blueprint: The Hero's Two Journeys.

You walk on an elevator and just before the door closes Steven Spielberg gets on. You have 60 secs to pitch him your latest screenplay. What do you do?

Your goal is to have your audience say “yes, I understand, and I care” after reading or watching your brand story.

If your audience just says “now I know” then you have successfully informed them but not enough to make them care, to make them stay to whatever you have to say next. They DON'T teach you this in Film School!

Your career can be made in 60 seconds - if you make the right pitch!

Master the Elevator Pitch, even when you've got less than 60 seconds. Get your screenplay or Novel read by the major power of Hollywood - guaranteed!

Instructor Michael Hauge walks your through his process of breaking down the key elements of your story and how to pitch them in 60 secs.
