Our ScreenwritingU Alumni just came back from the InkTip Pitch Summit and had a lot of success. Every day right now, more script requests are rolling in for the group. But one person stood out. J.T. Quinn
Going in with 12 scripts, J.T. and his partner used a different strategy up front — They asked the producers what kind of comedy they wanted to hear. "Since we were pitching what they wanted, it made them happy," J.T. said. "Then, once they liked that first pitch, we got to pitch them more."
By the end of the day, J.T. had 72 script requests, and more have come in since the event. In this 14 minute interview, you can hear how he prepared, how he pitched, how he created momentum, and how he has ALREADY followed up to keep producers excited about the screenplays.
