Learn from the Leading PitchMan

Ken Rotcop, the acknowledged Grand Master of Pitching, is the creator and owner of PitchMart, an internationally recognized pitch festival for writers and development executives. He was the first to establish the bridge between unknown aspiring screenwriters and Hollywood.

As a former Creative Head of four Hollywood studios including Embassy Pictures, Cannon TV, Trans World Productions and Hanna-Barbera, Ken supervised The Lion in Winter, Carnal Knowledge, The Graduate, and Charlotte’s Web. As a screenwriter, Rotcop’s most prestigious production (which he both wrote and produced) was For Us, the Living: The Story of Medgar Evers, which starred Laurence Fishburne. The movie won the Writer’s Guild Award, the Image Award, and the Neil Simon Award.

DVD Series

sell your scriptKen Rotcop has weekly workshops in Woodland Hills and meets privately with writers, taking your idea to a completed screenplay.

Ken says, "I challenge all those who take out ads in magazines and newspapers and charge good money for critiquing scripts, claiming to be an expert in guiding new writers when they've merely hung a shingle out that says they're a script consultant.

I challenge them - how many of them have been a creative head of four studios? How many of them have won the Writers Guild Award for their writing? How many of them have won the Neil Simon Award? How many have won an Image Award for producing? How many of them have been featured on Oprah, NPR, The Wall Street Journal, and have had a feature documentary made about their workshop?"

Probably not many. But Ken Rotcop can make these claims as a veteran of the movie business for 40 years and is  still activiely involved. And in this DVD you'll find the wealth of knowledge that thousands of writers, both novice and professional, have learned from Ken and have used to forward their careers.

Now, in one place, watch over an hour of answers to the 20 most asked questions of Ken from his workshops, seminars, and private consultations.

New: More than 30 minutes of live seminar content added.

In Ken's DVD you'll find the real answers only an award-winning Veteran Hollywood Creative Executive and award winning writer can provide.
