In the entertainment business, pitch meetings are an essential part of the process of selling ideas — and getting jobs. A good pitch meeting is like a spell being cast on everyone in the room, explains host Rob Long. As a public service, Rob gives his expert guide to pitch meeting success, starting with what beverage one should order (it matters!) and ending with the post-pitch conversation in the car. And whatever you do, don’t make the mistake of sharing your material with a fellow writer, or the dreaded pitch face may ensue.
