Do you have a screenplay, book or idea for a TV show or movie that you would like to get made then here’s your chance to sell to Hollywood producers, actor-companies, directors-companies, agents, and managers.
Only ONE person needs to like your idea or script, find them here. Check out our track record and look at our dozens of success stories and testimonials.This is your opportunity to sell and pitch your script to some of the big names in Hollywood. Once a year, Sherwood Oaks, aka, MeetHollywoodExecs, provides opportunities to pitch your screenplay to the largest quality one-on-one film pitching available for this price range.
Spend time getting feedback and learning to pitch before you sell [option] your big screenplay. This special day is jam-packed with micro-meetings with numerous high level producers and Hollywood execs in which students are given up to 3 minutes to pitch their scripts to almost every guest, followed by up to 3 minutes of highly valuable feedback – something you’re not likely to get from other pitch fests! We provide a higher level of producer where recognize the value of your time. Our pitching companies ranked us as the highest quality non-full time film pitching seminar.
One on One Pitching
This is for people who are interested in selling their script and meeting the greatest number of Hollywood professionals in one day. You get 2 minutes to pitch then 2 minutes of feedback then you move onto the next table. Usually 4 minutes of pitching and then a 4-minute break. In our last pitch fest, each person pitched to at least 20 companies including some of the biggest names in the business. Often times this can be enlarged to 6 to 8 minutes depending on the number of students and the length of time the company or individual is available (minimum 3 hours).
Most pitching events have 200 to 600 people. In this event we are limited to 40 students so the numbers are reasonable. We also guarantee a higher caliber of guest than at most pitch fests. Although many “pitch fests” claim to offer the same experience, the truth of the matter is that the typical pitch fest will accept any representative from a production company – often a receptionist, who cannot offer the same caliber of feedback that the decision-makers themselves can. Sherwood Oaks only invites seasoned Producers and industry professionals who will provide useful feedback on improving your pitch. We cannot guarantee the companies that you can pitch to but we do promise one of the best ratios and the greatest number of high level producers in any pitch event.

Testimonial on Pitching
Please read a review from our sold-out August 2011 Pitching Class.
You can read dozens more of these under Success Stories
“I went to the August 23 -25, 2011 Pitching Class/ Session. Within 5 seconds of opening my mouth, Gary shut me down, said it could be better and taught me the RIGHT WAY to pitch to big executives. He did the same thing to everyone. HE’S A GENIUS.
Once we had the skills we needed, the actual Sessions started. For the next 7 hours, we pitched our screenplays to one executive after another. THREE of them are reading my screenplay RIGHT NOW!! Of course they don’t accept the scripts there at the session. WOULD YOU CARRY THEM AROUND???
There is nothing that compares to what Gary and Christine do. You’ll network with stars and execs, you couldn’t meet on your own in 10 years, MAYBE IN YOUR LIFETIME!
If you’re trying to break in to Hollywood, check their website regularly for classes and events.
Gary knows and is known by the BIGGEST NAMES IN HOLLYWOOD. His brother did Alien, Minority Reports and many more. AND they’re the coolest, most down to earth people you could ever meet. WE HAD A GREAT TIME, GOT OUR WORK MOVING FORWARD AND MADE SUPER COOL, SUPER TALENTED NEW FRIENDS.”
- Mark, writer who drove from San Diego to at our sold out August 2011 Pitching Class
