Penn in Hollywood: “What Makes a Good Pitch?”

(l to r): Lew Schneider (C’83), event producer Reg Tigerman (C’07), Zach Lutsky (C’97),
Sherri Cooper Landsman (C’94) and Jason Resnick (C’92)

Yesterday, I posted a video about a Penn alum asking our Penn in Pictures panel about getting a Hollywood job.

Today’s question from our audience is:
“What Makes a Good Pitch?  
…and how do I know if it’s going well in the pitch room?”

Listen to the experiences from our panel …especially from Sherri and Lew.

Any suggestions of your own to offer our Penn community?  Comment below!

A special thanks to editor David Chalfin (C’96), a fantastic editor living in Los Angeles who recorded and edited all the Penn in Pictures videos. Check out his reel here!

What People Are Saying

"Because of Penntertainment, I got scouted for Nickelodeon. I had such a great time talking with them. I may be a resource for a show on science, travel, geography, gender etc. Thanks for all you do. It really makes a difference."
