How To Create A Pitch Deck For A Film / TV Drama Series
Why do you need a pitch deck for your film / TV drama series?
So, you’ve got a compelling script and a great creative team. But how do you persuade funders that your project and your team are worthy of investment? With an outstanding pitch deck!
Funders and investors listen to hundreds of pitches for new film / TV projects every year — and they have a short attention span. So, your pitch has to be truly compelling to capture their attention quickly. It has to make them feel what viewers will feel when they watch your movie / TV drama series.
Filmmakers often lose out on potential financing by relying on a written pitch: logline, synopsis and treatment.
But if you invest in a superb pitch deck that ‘sells’ your project through enticing visuals, persuasive language and an appropriate tone, your chance of securing funding skyrockets.
I will guide you through key decisions: how much information to include, the order in which to present that information, choosing a font that conveys tone, how to write the text for maximum impact, and selecting meaningful visuals. I can work with your available budget to elevate your pitch materials.

Film Pitch Deck Testimonials
“Fiona has an amazing ability to convey stories visually. With her talents and experience, and a highly collaborative ethos, she is an asset to any creative project she is involved with. In designing the pitch deck for one of my feature screenplays, she sourced powerful images that use lighting and framing to convey the right tone of the story and perfectly capture the look and feel of the film and its main characters. She wrote clear and influential text on each slide to match those images…the result was an eye-catching and captivating document that showcases my project perfectly. I highly recommend her services!” — Dee Chilton, screenwriter.
“I wasn’t looking at taking on any new projects when Fiona approached me about producing one of her feature films, but her elevator pitch piqued my interest enough to click the link to the pitch deck. And, once I saw that, I was hooked. Of course, it was a great project, but the way Fiona presented it made the film jump off the computer screen and onto the silver screen right before my eyes. Within a couple of minutes the scope of the project and Fiona’s vision for it, as director, were apparent. I had a birds-eye view, in glorious technicolour, of the film’s potential, and I wanted to be involved. I remember thinking, ‘If the pitch is this good, the film will be incredible.’” — Declan Cassidy, producer.
