"The Art of the Pitch" Virtual Seminar with Emmy Award-Winning Producer Gina Matthews

Friday, April 22, 2022 at 12:00pm to 1:30pm

Virtual Event

Coming up with a great idea is only half the battle. You’ll need to know how to effectively “pitch” it to get the funding and resources that you need to make it a reality. In this unique virtual event, Emmy Award-Winning UO alumna and Little Engine Productions Founder, Gina Matthews shares the secrets to crafting an entertaining pitch that will keep audience members on the edge of their seat.

Matthews’ experience and success producing film and television has given her a front row seat to countless pitches, across all genres — some successful, some not. She will share her wisdom, show us excerpts from real-life Hollywood pitches, and sprinkle memorable anecdotes along the way.

Matthews’ credits include the hit romantic comedies What Women Want starring Mel Gibson and Helen Hunt, 13 Going On 30 starring Jennifer Garner and Mark Ruffalo, and Isn’t it Romantic starring Rebel Wilson and Liam Hemsworth. She began her producing career with the Urban Legend horror franchise, and most recently produced the true story romantic drama All My Life for Universal Pictures.

This workshop is geared toward Cinema Studies students and alumni, but Ducks from almost any industry will benefit from learning the art of creating an emotionally resonate, concise pitch. Attendees from other disciplines are enthusiastically welcome to join us for the seminar and subsequent Q & A session.
