Jim Arnoff on Pitching and Negotiation
By Liliane Mavridara

On January 28, Jim Arnoff facilitated an interactive workshop on the art of pitching and negotiating. Jim was attending the Reelscreen Conference and he had some specific and great examples to share with the group.

  • It's all about passion and how you communicate that to the pitching prospects
  • A pitch meeting is like dating; it may take a few dates to see if it is a good fit. Share about your passion, what inspired you to write your piece, what do you envision for it?
  • In order to prepare for the pitching process, consider the following:
    • Titles are critical
    • There is no competition
    • It is about your connection both to your project and whom you are meeting with
    • Talk about something other than business first
    • Be succinct and into the point.
  • When you describe your project be very specific. It is better to say"I have a 6-part web series and here is the link to it", than just saying "I have an idea..."
  • Come up with visuals-what will differentiate you from the clutter of other ideas and projects?
  • Think of the pitch as a two-way conversation; express yourself and let go of expectations
  • One Sheets are very important and your information should be able to catch the prospect's  interest right on the spot
  • The best ways to reach a Network Executive (for TV programming) are, 1) to go through a production company, 2) to find the show-runner (or senior producer), and 3) to hire an Agent.
  • Negotiating Do's and Don'ts: It is better to go in with one other person (ideally an agent who knows the industry) and remember that 1) your style matches who you are and 2) the people you have around you (your team) represent you. Choose well.
