Ever had your Sandcastle crumble halfway through.
As per usual, that's how my pitch went...
Not that it went badly. In fact it was really well received. But my ability to think cognitively and remain unflustered were dramatically reduced. It's something that is integral to pitching well; being comfortable with those questions I have probably considered in putting the ideas together for the film but are unable to articulate under pitch conditions. I think what I really need is to attend some sort of public speaking or acting classes.
I have to say I was jealous of the North Americans who, as a natural part of their education system, do so much public speaking. The difference was palpable.
I guess that's it. The next pitch will be better, and the one after better than that, and so forth.
