  • Who will be teaching the How to Pitch Your Pilot course?
    You’ll learn directly from Moonshot Initiative co-founders Katrina Medoff and Tracy Sayre, who have prepared Moonshot Pilot Accelerator (formerly WWFC’s Pilot Accelerator) fellows to pitch to major studios and production companies. They have sat in on more than 100 pitch meetings they set up for their fellows with companies including HBO, Netflix, Warner Bros., Hulu, Showtime, Comedy Central, and more. Execs have shared that the Moonshot fellows' pitches were exceptionally polished and that they were more prepared than many of the pitches they normally see. Now, they’re bringing their expertise gained from the Moonshot Pilot Accelerator to Moonshot’s “How to Pitch Your Pilot” course.
  • What are the dates and times of the live virtual meetups?
    For our How to Pitch Your Project course in November 2023, these are the dates and times: Monday, Nov. 6, 5-6:30 p.m. Pacific / 8-9:30 p.m. Eastern Thursday, Nov. 16, 5-6:30 p.m. Pacific / 8-9:30 p.m. Eastern Monday, Nov. 20, 5-6:30 p.m. Pacific / 8-9:30 p.m. Eastern
  • How do I sign up to receive instructor feedback on my pitch?
    To receive live instructor feedback on your pitch, sign up via our Calendly link (available in your course registration email or on once you have registered and logged in). You must select a feedback date by Nov. 2 to guarantee your spot.
  • Do I have to have a project to pitch to participate in the course? Is it required to sign up for an instructor feedback session?
    You are welcome to soak up everything there is to learn from the course and live sessions without pitching your work! Often, we learn the most from observing others, because it's easier to be objective about what is needed to improve a pitch. Come watch and learn!
  • Will the live meetings be recorded?
    We will be recording portions of the live virtual meetups and posting them on the group discussion board at a later date. However, some of the time in the live meetup will be spent in breakout rooms, which of course will not be recorded. The only way to experience this part of the course will be to join live.
  • What are the dates and times of the peer practice sessions?
    There are two peer practice sessions during the How to Pitch Your Pilot course in November 2023. This is your opportunity to receive feedback on your pitch from a classmate and to hone your ability to give feedback by assessing your partner’s pitch. There are two days for peer pitch practice: Thursday, Nov. 9 (choose your meeting time with your partner) Monday, Nov. 13 (choose your meeting time with your partner) Sign up for one or both practice sessions via our peer pitch practice sign-up form (available in your course registration email or on
  • In the How to Pitch Your Project course, will I be preparing a pitch deck?
    The How to Pitch Your Project course focuses on the skill of verbal pitching, so we will not be preparing any visual aids or pitch decks. Given the limited class time, we will be prioritizing mastering the art of speaking about your work, your ideas, and yourself as a creative.
  • What kinds of verbal pitches will I be preparing for the How to Pitch Your Project course?
    Course participants will be preparing both a 30-second elevator pitch and a longer version of the pitch. Please note that while in typical pitch meetings, pitches might be 20 minutes, 30 minutes, or even longer, you will be working on the skill of verbal pitching in a more condensed fashion. Our belief is that it is always easier to expand upon a pitch than to make it more concise; it’s important to be able to convey ideas succinctly when needed. Our course will help you hone your verbal pitching skills so that you are able to build a more in-depth pitch when need be.
