Author Solutions, Inc., the world leader in indie book publishing, announced Monday it’s hosting the inaugural Book-to-Screen PitchFest July 22-23 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in the heart of the Los Angeles entertainment district. The schedule for the Book-to-Screen PitchFest includes:
- Reception and Cocktail Opener - July 22: Held at the elegant Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in West Los Angeles, authors meet Hollywood producer Robert Kosberg, “the King of the Pitch,” and actor Marcus Chait, ASI’s director of new media, as well as mingle with other attendees.
- How to Pitch Workshop with One-on-One Learning - July 23 (morning): Kosberg teaches attendees how to pitch a book to Hollywood and then gives each the opportunity to fine tune their approaches with one-on-one direct pitches to him and Chait.
- Speed-Pitch - July 23 (afternoon): Attendees pitch to Hollywood company representatives in a “speed dating” setting. Each will have two minutes per company to make a lasting impression.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for indie authors to gain rare access with key figures who make decisions about what is seen on the silver screen and television,” said Keith Ogorek, ASI senior vice president of marketing. “Every project begins as a pitch and this is a great first step for this group of authors to work toward realizing the dream of breaking into the entertainment industry.”
The Book-to Screen PitchFest is available exclusively to just the first 150 authors published through ASI and ASI partnership imprints, that. One month prior to the Book-to-Screen PitchFest, attendees will receive a pre-event assignment to help develop a first draft pitch for the Speed-Pitch event.
