REVIEWS:

<<<Kristen M>>> Wow. Once again – very interesting and insightful, Shane. Many Thanks! I can not wait to see the next episodes. Cheers. Kris
<<<Braden B>>> Very very nice Shane. I have always been the agency guy on the receiving end of pitch docs so I’ve never seen things from this perspective. Thank you for sharing. Looking forward to part two. I would also encourage people to proofread these documents a thousand times or hire a proofreader. Nothing starts off a pitch worse than typos. It just immediately sets a tone of unprofessionalism even if the talent is stellar.
<<<Melody T>>> This was fabulous, thank you, Shane!
I’m curious how long you typically spend crafting a treatment like this? I know that it is just part of the business, but it can be such a letdown to spend hours on a treatment that never goes anywhere. And on the other side of that, the irony getting hired sometimes from just a one sentence pitch.
<<<Ahmed>>> Dear Shane, really awesome stuff waiting to see the whole series.
