'Pitch your art in 1 minute'
Workshop 'Pitch your art in 1 minute' by True Underground Project.
You leave with: A critically reviewed 'elevator pitch' and if you bring a usb-stick you can even take a video recording of it home with you.
This workshop triggers you to develop a quick intro to newcomers, bookers, or anyone who might be interested in you as an artist. By using video, the workshop enables the artist to learn to present him or herself. After writing down a 1 minute pitch based on 7 key points, all participants record their pitch on the camera on location. After looking back at the pitch, there is a round of comments, followed by a final rewrite of the pitch. Out of every 10 participants 1 artist will win a professional '1 minute art pitch' video for online promotion. This video is sponsored by True Underground Project: http://trueundergroundproject.com/
