Pitching Yourself & Your Work (On Demand)

on demand course

This is an On Demand course. On Demand courses allow you to watch pre-recorded lectures at your own pace, with curated resources and other materials to support your work. You can begin taking this course at any time. 

In order to serve more of the Sundance Collab community, we developed this On Demand course from existing live online course content. By doing so, we are able to offer Pitching Yourself & Your Work (On Demand) at a price that allows more people to benefit from the course content. 

What makes a good pitch? How do you get the right person to hear it? From macro to micro, this On Demand course will tackle everything from meeting and email etiquette to navigating festivals and labs.
