The Pitch

How long should a pitch be?

Some producers say that they should be a few sentences long and some say they should be short enough so you are able to say your pitch while in an elevator (elevator pitch).

Our task: Develop and write a short  drama script of between two and three minutes in length. The script is to be based on one of the two premises below:

  1. There is a hammering on a door, it opens to reveal a dishevelled breathless person, why? How did they get this way….
  2. There is a hammering on a door, why? Dare the door be opened? If so what is revealed…

I chose the second one as I couldn’t think of anything. It was difficult for me to word my pitch so if you don’t understand it then you will once I upload my outline.

My Pitch

A young, newly married couple are sitting watching T.V when there is a sudden knock at the door. As the woman gets up to answer the door reality becomes apparent.
