San Rafael, CA, June 18, 2012 — RipplFX will play host to producer and idea man Bob Kosberg, during a special, one-day event entitled “The Art of Pitching: How to Sell Your Ideas to Hollywood.” The event will be held at 32TEN Studios in San Rafael (Marin County), CA, from Noon-7:30 PM on Thursday, July 26th.
Kosberg’s talk is designed to help anyone who has ever thought they had a great idea — someone who doesn’t need to have a completed script or even be a writer. He will demonstrate how to formulate succinct, persuasive and compelling pitches that can land ideas onto TV or the big screen. For ticket sales and a slate of the day’s events, please see:
Kosberg will cover topics such as:
**How to find a good idea
**What a “high-concept” idea really is
**How to pack¬age a “saleable” idea
**How to sell a one-line idea, con¬cept or story
**How to pitch a com¬pleted script
**Style points and salesmanship
**What makes a great pitch
**Getting your pitch to Hollywood’s decision makers
Participants will also have the opportunity to present their own 90-second pitches, receive immediate feedback, and have a chance to win a one-on-one consultation with Kosberg. Each participant will also receive a free copy of Kosberg’s new mobile app, which has been developed by RipplFX. Entitled “Mr. Pitch,” the app will be available on the Apple and Android platforms in July 2012, and offers users frequent and easy access to Kosberg’s expertise, by submitting pitch ideas online for immediate and personal feedback from Kosberg himself. The app also features bonus material like rewards, badges, and video content.
Kosberg will be speak¬ing inside the 32TEN Theater, located within 32TEN Studios (the historic facility originally occupied by George Lucas’ ILM.) The theater is where the first THX sound sys¬tem was installed and where sev¬eral Lucas¬Film movies have been staged. Kosberg has helped numerous people who have attended these events to sell ideas and concepts to such stars as Drew Barrymore, Katherine Heigl, and Barbra Streisand. These projects were set up at Fox, Dreamworks, and Sony.
