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.

They Are Saying...

“Before you can get someone to read your screenplay you have to know how to pitch them on the idea. Ken Rotcop is the master at teaching writers how to pitch. Remember, it’s all in the pitch!”

Oprah Winfrey The Oprah Winfrey Show

“Two-thirds of the earth’s surface is covered with water and the other third is covered with people who have fabulous ideas for shows if only a producer would give them an opportunity. Ken Rotcop, an award-winning writer and producer, provides a guiding light to this group.”

Robert Siegel, All Things Considered, NPR

"Mr. Rotcop was the single most influential person I met in those early years in my career. He gave me the courage to go after my dream."

Andrea Leigh Wolf, Author of Sell Your Screenplay: Your Guide To The Independant Film and Television Producer.

“Forget about snappy dialogue, characterization and plot. It’s the pitch that gets a script read and a movie deal done. If it were not for Ken Rotcop, most new writers would be out of the loop.”

John Lippman, Wall Street Journal

“Ken Rotcop is the guru when it comes to teaching writing.”
