Elevator Pitch

So what will be the one-sentence pitch I should use for my novel if I’m riding in an elevator with an agent?

Dirty Mary and Crazy Larry adopt Forrest Gump, and they’re all vampires. 😈

Life is like switching cars during a car chase,
you never know what you’re going to get…

Interesting trivia: Film director John Hough’s followup to Dirty Mary Crazy Larry was the Disney classic Escape To Witch Mountain, which also features a long car chase sequence, complete with fender-mounted camera shots and a vehicle sailing into a river, as seen in “DMCL“.
Eugene Daniels appears in both films, as Sheriff Hank in “DMCL“, then “Cort” in “ETWM“. 😉

  1. At the RMFW 2011 Colorado Gold conference, this type of pitch was defined as the “Hollywood Pitch”, when two movies constitute the compared examples.

  2. So did you get a chance to use your clever elevator pitch at the conference?
