What clients are saying about Scott’s work…

“I commissioned Scott to create a pitch deck for me based on an idea and vision that I had for my own show. Scott not only delivered what was requested but he OVER DELIVERED what was asked, far exceeding expectations and crafting everything so beautifully. He put a great deal of effort into his work and the results have been spectacular. Hire this guy to craft and create your pitch deck and synopsis. You won’t regret it!”

Words cannot describe how thankful I am that I engaged Scott Manville last year to write and market my project.  I have been in the television industry in production and on air for over 15 years and I have never had a more successful business relationship. In the brutal world of television, having a fabulous concept is not always enough to move things into production. It takes someone like Scott, who has the talent and dynamic pitching ability. Without Scott’s expertise, my script would have just been another script among the thousands that get submitted to production companies and networks on a daily basis.

Even though the television world has it’s ups and downs, Scott’s charismatic personality and honest business ethics made this process pleasant, exciting and a truly valuable learning experience. He is so knowledgeable in so many different areas of the television industry from development to production to legal contracts. After pitching the concept’s treatment that Scott developed and wrote, I received multiple offers from A-List companies. He even helped me navigate through countless meetings and a few contracts that were almost signed before signing a deal with the right production company. Scott could have convinced me to sign with the first company that came forward, but his knowledge of what was possible and right for my deal brought better opportunity. For that, I am so grateful.

Scott was there every step of the way through this process and always available to guide me through the bumps in the road. Scott Manville is one of the few honest men left in the entertainment industry. I would recommend his service in a heartbeat to any aspiring producers or writers.”

I hired Scott Manville to help develop an idea for a half-hour cable reality series. The process took roughly a month to complete, and by the end I had a Production Company pick up the idea and schedule a pilot shoot! I must say I was very impressed with Scott’s knowledge, understanding, and professionalism. In pitching to several production companies, one even referred to him as a “Legend” in the business of concept development. Scott took my ideas and research and compacted it into a top caliber concept that you will likely see on the networks soon! I’ve been in TV both on and off air for 10 years, and I can tell you that Scott works wonders for a reasonable amount of money. What the success of the concept comes down to is how revolutionary you idea is and your tenacity to get it picked up. If you are thinking about hiring Scott, those with faith and determination bring dreams to reality.For those of you who truly believe your idea is something people need and want to see, I highly recommend Scott Manville’s services. He makes the process comfortable, detailed, and affordable. If you have the right attitude from there, the rest will be history!

“Thank you for turning my story into a masterpiece that’s ready for market. When I sent you my first draft I didn’t know what to expect, but you certainly brought my story to life.

Scott Manville has been wonderful!! I have asked LOTS of questions throughout this process, sought his guidance, and have secured his writing skills by having him rewrite several projects. He has truly been a HUGE asset and a valued sounding board. I certainly owe my success in large part to him and The Writers Vault. I would recommend his writing service to any and everyone.”

“Scott’s experience producing allowed him to zero in on the core format elements of my half-hour comedy game series.  The eye candy he produced for my Pitch Deck has given my project a life of its own.  Don’t think twice.  Get a Pitch Deck from Scott Manville and watch your project get noticed!”

    Dear Scott,
    I have an idea for a television game show that I want to pitch to TV producers on your pitch deck. Using section headings, bullet points, and a couple of simple 2-D tables, I have written a two-page description of how the show would be organized. Although you have not yet seen/read it, can you please tell me if such a description would suffice for the written synopsis required for designing the pitch deck to communicate the elements of my idea to producers?
    Thank you very much in advance for your time.

      Hi Godwin- Thanks for reaching out. Game shows are the one format where a pitch deck is difficult to create, because for game formats you really want to either film a run-through of the game with contestants, or have a digital app that can run an executive through the process of game play. Decks need to be connecting with mood and message. So they’re more often ideal for reality-based, docuseries, films, etc. where there is a story, subject, and people involved. A very clean and clever pitch written for a game format can be great. Beyond that, you need a live run-through as proof of creation. I hope that sheds some light. Best, Scott

    Hi Scott, I’m very interested in engaging your support for development of a pitch deck, and have a few questions. Once a pitch deck is complete, once I have my log-line, one-pager, and sample script – what then?
    Do you also provide services to help get the materials in front of producers? I’m already a member of TV Writers Vault. If you don’t have that kind of service, other than posting on TV Writers Vault, do you have advice on how to get the completed materials in front of producers?

      I can take a look at your project. Once you have all materials, you want to guild connections by many means.. whether it’s a platform like ours to pitch producers scouting, or other venues like industry conferences and film festivals where TV/Film company execs are. Right now, they’re all figuring out to what degree they can hold any type of event, so that may be some time. Reaching out directly to specific companies, striking up a chat, and seeing if they’re open for submissions is another task. Many companies do most of their own development in-house, but if you bring something highly original and they see that in their world they can complete the puzzle, then good things happen.

      Scott

        I’m including details of a legal issue I had with a music recording firm. It’s part of my life story.
        Here’s the “kicker”…
        I lost due to the statute of limitations, however I wound up developing a “cordial” email correspondence with the president of the company and subsequently he encouraged me to pursue this and that he and the company were “OK” with being included in the script!
        Will this be a plus or hurt my chances when producers scout?

        I’m sorry, I didn’t spot your name… but thank you for the question.
        One of the things you don’t want to bring into the process at the level of engaging a production company, and ultimately a network, is conflict.

        If you’ve already been involved in a lawsuit with and against that recording firm, why on earth would you want to bring them to the party? They can frustrate the process at any point for any reason (retribution or grandstanding), and you don’t need them.

        If you’re saying that the project is specifically about their music, then they own that and you have to ask why you’d want to roll up the sleeves and work for them. If they don’t, and the music is just something that you feel is the right tone or the right window dressing for the story, make a new creative choice. The last thing you want to have to do is explain to the producers who end up investing their time and resources, is that you were involved in a lawsuit with the recording firm…SPECIFICALLY ABOUT THAT PROJECT. Run, don’t walk. You can make better choices for the project.

      Hello Ines-
      Game show pitch decks should key on the various original elements the format has. It helps by providing visual information that engages the reader, while outlining very clearly what the format is and what the dramatic moments are as the game progresses. No matter the genre, it’s always good to have visuals that open the mind up to the style, tone, and unique elements.

      Photographic images are always best unless the genre is specifically animated.
      But for your genre, there’s probably representations that can illustrate that world if put together like a “mood deck” (samples from other works pieced together to create the world or tone). We can figure out the rate if it runs longer. Feel free to email me at smanville at msn dot com

    1. scott manville says:

      Hello Joshua-
      Thank you for the questions. To answer:
      1- Yes, I’ve had many TV series pitches sell using pitch decks I’ve created. It’s always a subjective process, so there’s no real “standard”, but there are choices and methods that are used that executives and producers absorb to easily understand the potential of any pitch. That’s why I do.
      2- A sizzle reel is always what you want, but it’s such a definite and final product that sometimes it can hurt the project. I guess what I’m getting at is… You want the studio or the executive producer who’s sold to networks to produce the sizzle reel that will sell to a network… and it’s going to be a LOT different than a reel produced by someone in their first run at producing. I always feel it’s best to set up producers to want the project based on potential content, but then THEY decide how any reel should be produced. Often they’ll pre-sell the pitch to a network executive, then the network funds a pilot/reel (non-airable, usually). That’s the quality you want in a reel.
      Feel free to email me at the contact link on the homepage.
      Happy to answer any other specific questions.
