Know Thy Elevator Pitch!

If you don’t have a properly constructed Elevator Pitch/Quick Pitch you already have a problem in your story. In fact, instead of waiting until a screenplay is finished and polished before constructing your Quick Pitch (the traditional method I was taught) I use it in “Is My Script A Movie?” workshop at the start of the writing process to uncover any missing key elements in a story to save a writer from getting 40–60 pages into the screenplay before discovering there is a story problem.
