Words of wisdom from BOSI.
1) Be prepared to meet always-questioning, confused investors/executives. Many times folks with lots of loot, power, and influence aren’t the most creative people. So help them get inside your brain. Put together storyboards, have drawings, play music, do a puppet show, anything. Well, maybe not a puppet show.
2) Be tenacious. In order to get the meeting, you need to hit up everyone you know and even more people you don’t. Call them.
3) Meet the right people. You should know before you start knocking on doors who the most likely targets are. What network would put your idea on TV? What studio makes like-minded movies? What investor has put money into these types of projects?
4) Be confident but don’t be arrogant. If you’re gracious and open, even if they say no, they will keep you in mind for other projects.
