Pitch Repair from Pitching Coach, Gary Shusett
Any writer who has ever pitched a script will tell you – it is the most nerve-wracking experience one can endure. But, you do it because you know that’s the only way to get your baby on the big screen.
So, you take a deep breath and you sit down in front of two executives that have the power to make your dreams come true. You lay your logline on them, they stare intently back at you. You press on, unsure of yourself, and lay your 3 minute pitch on them, giving the full synopsis. By now, you are probably sweating profusely and wondering just what they’re thinking. The executives thank you politely, shake your sweaty hand, and send you on your way – no comments, no suggestions, no indication whatsoever whether they loved or hated it! So, how do you know if your pitch is working for you?
Whether you’re a seasoned professional, or a total newbie, the fact is that every writer wonders whether or his/her pitch is good enough. That’s where a great pitch coach can make all the difference!
If you have confidence in your pitch, you will have confidence in yourself, and are therefore a hundred times more likely to achieve your goal and sell your script.
Sherwood Oaks’ Director, Gary Shusett, has over 30 years of experience and a unique talent for constructing the perfect pitch! He has helped hundreds of writers by pinpointing the issues with their pitches, rooting out anything that may be detracting from their effectiveness, smoothing out the rough areas, and even coaching writers on how to improve their overall approach to their Hollywood careers.
Afterall, you can have the best pitch on earth, but if you don’t know what to do next, you’re career is dead in the water! This is why Gary uses his years of experience and special talent to give each writer a word-for-word breakdown of how to correct their pitch, and maximize not just a script’s potential, but more importantly – the writer’s potential for Hollywood success.

Gary Shusett has a unique ability to help turn a bland logline into one that stands out and captures peoples’ attention. We implemented his suggestions to help improve our loglines and we have since optioned one script and now have another that has gotten some attention. In future, we are going to go to Gary to get his help with our pitches before marketing another script. It’s amazing how effective and helpful Gary is.
Isabel & Marilyn Duarte
“I have to say it was a rare pleasure to meet you, Gary. It’s like a breath of fresh air to talk to a straight shooter in Hollywood. I never knew how to pitch until I heard you taking apart everyone’s pitches, with 19 feature scripts, the pitch was the only thing holding me back.
Thank you from the soul. I’ll never forget your advice.”
Orlanda Hokanson Szabo
” I want to express my deep gratitude to Gary for being so approachable, honest, and helpful. I cannot overstate how valuable your advice has been. In the few minutes we talked, you turned my pitch on it’s head and made it 100% better. Not only that, but your instruction has given me a much more solid understanding of the strange animal that is “pitching”, and how it differs from the process of storytelling. A thousand thanks to you and your staff, Gary. I look forward to attending another event soon!”
