5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent! Full of great tips! 21. Juli 2011
Von Mondea
I can already say, I could buy anything from Michael Hauge and it will be good.

In this book he guides you through the process of selling your ideas. How to put your whole script into a short sentence and get your ideas read.

He gives you advice in how to make a good presentation, in written and audible form and make this first contact with an agent or producer. How to make it possible that someone with little time gets interested in you and is willing to listen to you. How to be precise and with a strong pitch.

It's an easy-to-read book full of tips and advices. It's written in a very dynamic way, there's no boring parts. You can't get stuck in your career if you follow the steps he points at.

I recommend to read first his other book "writing screenplays that sell" and then this one. This one is sort of a second part.

5.0 von 5 Sternen AMAZING BOOK!! GET READY TO PITCH... 11. Oktober 2006
Von Matthew Terry - Veröffentlicht auf
In front of me were six Hollywood types. One a writer, one a director of commercials, one a Producer, one another writer and a couple more. It's all a blur now. I stood, with my back to 200 people or so and pitched my idea. My legs shook, my knees knocked, was I going to fall over? Throw up? What was going to happen?

I started with the premise that I had thought up over 7 years prior: "What if two children went to visit Santa and found him to be a disgruntled bitter old man?" That was my leading question and I fell into my pitch after that. When I was through (which seemed like forever) - the Producer looked at me and pointed at me and said: "Now THAT'S the perfect pitch. I want to read that script. I can sell that script."

She's still my Producer/Manager - but the script hasn't sold...yet. What did I do right? What did I do wrong? What can you learn from that experience?

Well, I can tell you that after I pitched I got peppered with questions from the panel and, well, I answered them. Which opened up MORE questions and I answered THOSE and then they thanked me and I sat down and people from around the country gave me a "thumbs up!" and "Good job!" And I sweated. I couldn't tell you much.

Michael Hauge, though, can. In his wonderful book: "Selling Your Story in 60 Seconds" he breaks down the entire process of selling your story.

Now, he does not go into what makes a sellable story, how to best deal with the three-act format, which software programs are the best, character arcs and story beats. This book is what it is. A book on selling your story. Writing it and dealing with all those aspects are left to other books.

Where Mr. Hauge succeeds is in dealing with all the details of the sell. Figuring out what it is you want to sell, figuring out who you want to approach, the avenues, means and methods on how to approach them, the 60 second pitch, and then the aftermath. This is all spelled out in excruciatingly clear detail (which is GREAT). No big words (okay, he does use the word "antecedents") - no convoluted paradigms or methodologies - just the basics on how to get your butt out of your chair and tell people about your wonderfully fantastic idea (which, of course, you should be doing already).

Another one of the excellent things Mr. Hauge does - is he devotes nearly 40 pages of a 180 page book to executives from all over the Hollywood food chain, to explain what works and doesn't work during a pitch. I found this to be a fantastic tool. Whether they contradict or compliment what you've read in the previous 140 pages - it doesn't matter.

This is an amazing book that really puts the nuts and bolts of the 60 second pitch in your hands but Mr. Hauge gives you the tools to really create something of worth and value out of it. A MUST for anyone with an idea to sell.

I've just finished a screenplay. I'm about to pitch it. It's wonderful. I'm passionate about it. It's a "High Concept" idea with great casting possibilities. Thank GOD for this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Author has command of his craft and communicates well 14. März 2007
Von Greg Abbott - Veröffentlicht auf
I attended 2 of Michael's seminars at Screenwriting Expo '06 and this book contains the same "special" quality of Michael's in-person class: He wants you to succeed. The book is an Instruction Manual for understanding, crafting and marketing your story. The material is digestible for beginners, valuable for all levels of writing, simple and thorough. There is a nice balance of "Do" and "Don't" advice. The "Executives on Pitching" Section provides confirmation and flavor to the meaty material that precedes it. This book is not simply a compilation of quotes and buzzwords. Michael has command of his craft and endeavors with the heart of a mentor to infuse it in his readers. 2 thumbs up :)

Von Graham Tully - Veröffentlicht auf
Writers are lucky to have this book available - it provides them with much specific & essential guidance on their quest for perfection and success. And it makes things easier for us - film company executives - as well, because dealing with writers who have been enlightened by this book saves us time, compared to dealing with those who choose the shaky road of "trial & error". Thus this book is invaluable to both Writers and Executives. [...]

5.0 von 5 Sternen Don't Even Think About Pitching Without Reading This Book! 9. Dezember 2006
Von Derek Rydall - Veröffentlicht auf
Don't even think about pitching your script without reading this book!

Michael Hauge has been to more pitch fests and conferences than just about any screenwriting teacher/consultant out there -- and he knows exactly what it takes to break through that glazed look in the Producer's eyes and make them take notice of your story.

As a professional screenwriter, I, too, have been to a lot of pitches (And as a professional script consultant, I've heard even more). And I thought I had my formula down. But I found Michael's specific techniques in this book to be really insightful and inspiring -- and I've already changed my approach because of it!

In his honest, witty, and authoritative style, Michael walks you through every step of the process, from clarifying your story's major turning points, knowing what to put in (and more importantly what to leave out) of the pitch, to how to create an instant connection with the one you're pitching to...and leave them wanting more.

Before you pitch your next story, whether over the phone or in person, read this book -- twice -- and let it guide you to creating the pitch-perfect plan for pitching your next script.

In the meantime, Stay Inspired -- and Keep Writing!
