Building a Kick-Ass Deck for Both Pitching and Inspiration

How to create a stunning deck to inspire and also help sell your feature or TV series

Pitch decks are useful for more than just pitching your script. Many writers create them for story inspiration—to set the tone, help them develop characters, or create an outline. Creating a formal pitch deck can help, even in the early stages of writing!

And, of course, they're good for their original purpose ... pitching your vision.

As a screenwriter and graphic artist, Maya Zivkovich will focus on tips to help you create a stunning pitch deck worthy of any producer's consideration.

Some say pitch decks or series bibles are some of the hardest things you’ll ever write. But, with the right tools, guidance and a dash of inspiration, you too can build a kick-ass pitch deck & series bible.

Maya will walk you through the importance of this document and break down the different components needed for your deck to truly stand out from the rest. No design experience necessary—you’ll get plenty of her best tips and tricks from her many years and expertise as a graphic artist.  

By the end of the presentation, you’ll be equipped with the knowledge, tools, templates and (hopefully) the motivation to get you on your way to creating your very own deck and be one huge step closer to selling your work. 

The presentation will cover:  

  • A brief history of pitch decks
  • The difference between pitch decks and series bibles
  • Key components for decks and bibles (sections/categories)
  • Formatting and referencing
  • Good VS bad (what not to do)
  • Examples of different decks and bibles
  • Q&A
