Theater Resources Unlimited presents Writer-Producer Speed Date

March 1, 2020

Shetler Studios
244 W 54th St, New York, NY 10019

Theater Resources Unlimited (TRU) presents a unique networking and educational opportunity for writers: TRU’s renowned Writer-Producer Speed Date on Tuesday, February 25, 2020 at Shetler Studios, 244 W. 54th Street, Penthouse. Submission deadline is 2/19/20. Session 1 offers coaching at 4:30PM, pitching at 5:30PM; session 2 offers coaching at 5:30PM, pitching at 6:30PM. Tickets are $75 for TRU members, $85 for non-members, $25 for each additional collaborator. Submission is free, and your spot in the lineup can be purchased upon acceptance starting 2/22/20 at https://truonline.org/events/speed-date-03-01-20/

You meet a producer at a party and have two minutes to interest him in your work. Do you have the skill to sell yourself? Here’s a chance to practice your pitching with real producers who are open to and interested in meeting you. Okay, they probably won’t option you on the spot, but they’ll give you valuable feedback about your work and your ability to talk about it. And you’ll have the opportunity to start developing a relationship. And that’s what this business is all about. Relationships.

“The Speed Date is the only event I know of that gives writers the chance to meet high level producers one-on-one in a room. To me, that’s what makes the Speed-Dates so valuable. And you do it with kindness, which I value in life,” says writer Vincent Amelio (How Alfo Learned to Love).

Go to https://truonline.org/events/speed-date-03-01-20/ for the application. Please fill out and email to [email protected] All works will be considered, traditional and non-traditional, including works in development. The first 10 applicants will be accepted automatically, and after that submissions will be evaluated for genre, subject matter, production size, uniqueness and level of development to maximize the variety and scope of works presented in the evening.

We’ll have eleven producers lined up, from both the commercial and not-for-profit worlds, all with an interest in new projects; we also may have eleven aspiring producers from our Producer Development program. So you’ll be pitching to as many as 22 producers in total! Come with a willingness to learn, because the real value is the chance to practice your pitching. And you’ll be getting invaluable coaching from experts, as well. And did we mention the wine and snacks afterwards?
