Pitching in the Pandemic

How to build relationship in the middle of a pandemic

Produced With
Thursday 4 March 2021

Producer Hub presented the conversation Pitching in the Pandemic livestreaming on the global, commons-based, peer-produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv on Thursday 4 March 2021 at 5 p.m. PST (San Francisco, UTC -8) / 7 p.m. CST (Chicago, UTC -6) / 8 p.m. EST (New York, UTC -5).

Let’s talk about pitching. For independent and creative producers, as well as artists, we often build relationships and secure engagements through a pitching process. This, like everything else, has shifted in the time of the COVID-19 pandemic. What is the best etiquette for establishing contact in a virtual world? What types of materials should be prepared? Who are the key players and decision makers when collaborating in the booking process?

In partnership with CIPA (Creative and Independent Producers Alliance), join us as a panel of producers and artists discuss their tactics for sharing & conveying the vision of your work, building relationships in new ways, and what we should carry with us into the future as we pitch.
