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.
