This year we had a coaching-day in Frankfurt (23.3.) and a workshop (29.-31.5.) in Dieburg at the media department of Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences, so far. Another workshop is planned for december 16th only for students of the Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts.

Working in the field of Arts & Culture we are constantly making next steps into the future. Ideas, innovations, new mindsets and creations need to be produced, manifested and to be discovered by an audience. The artists, creators and operators in cultural and artistic sectors need to convince their financiers, supporters to realize those new concepts. A process, which is called pitching in the audiovisual industry.

Pitching an idea or a concept to decision-makers is a nerve-wrecking process to some people – and a walk in the park for others. Notwithstanding lack or richness in personal skills everyone can learn to create a better pitch and increase the chance of pitching successfully.
The lecture is focusing on the ingredients for a strong, convincing pitch, understanding the importance of concise preparation and then enjoying it!

The session is meant to understand the importance of a good, consistent and yet brief technique of communication that enables to present a project in a few words and yet, never forgetting the intention to sell to the listener.

Communication skills are by far the most forgotten aspect of the selling process. It is not just a question of a good marketing mix. It deals with two main elements:

  • RESEARCH AND PREPARATION, before approaching any type of partners;
  • Understanding different PITCHING SITUATIONS and the appropriate approach.
  • It offers thoughts about ones INDIVIDUAL MINDSETS & its psychology towards the challenging situation of a pitch.
  • Then, LEARN HOW TO PITCH with clarity, consistency and persuasion.
  • And to enjoy it!

It will be a “hands-on-training session”. Attending participants must each bring their own project to this session.
Based on the morning lecture, which is obligatory, we continue with a Q&A session to clarify and specify the needs for each project and its presentation. The workshop will assist in preparing and developing a possible pitch for each specific concept. With practical exercises and according feedback from the group members and the trainer the participants have the opportunity to acknowledge and overcome their deficits in presentations. – And again to enjoy it!

All students of the hFMA-Network may apply. The workshop will take place at the Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences in Dieburg.

The Workshop will take place from May 29th to May 30th 2017 and could be extended until May 31th if participants wish to.
