One of the most useful tools for bringing on funders and partners is what we call a pitch deck. This is a simple tool meant to communicate about your film and the opportunity to partner. A pitch deck is a written document that helps you begin substantive conversations with potential supporters .

There's no one right way -- it’s not a formula more of an art -- but over our years crafting decks and advising filmmakers on theirs, we’ve learned some essential characteristics that all effective pitch decks have in common, including making them:

  • Professional but fun
  • Persuasive
  • Concise
  • A balance of imagery and written text

Communicate what your film is about and how a potential partner could work with you

This video lesson introduces you to these concepts and more.
