Sheldon Turner Interview

Here’s a great clip from The Dialogue Series with Sheldon Turner (Up In The Air, The Longest Yard) where he talks about pitching and how, more often than not, you aren’t going to be pitching the person who actually writes the check. You’re pitching the Creative/Development Executive and THEY pitch their boss. So your idea has to be something that is HIGHLY TRANSFERRABLE ie: “high concept” so that they can’t muck up your story! Good stuff.
