Pitch! is a weekly podcast focused on screenwriting, filmmaking, and how to pitch an idea. We're all currently filmmakers or have dabbled in screenwriting and filmmaking in the past. Our goal is to help demystify the pitching process primarily for screenwriters, but many of the lessons we're uncovering can apply to anyone selling an idea.
Pitch! is hosted by writer/director/journalist Leah Saint Marie and actor/director/writer Angel Daahoud Murphy. Pitch! is executive produced by Kevin Koperski and distributed by Streetlamp Media.
Leah Saint Marie, Host & Producer
Leah Saint Marie (formerly Welch) is a workhorse and award-winning screenwriter with a taste for deeply complex, thrilling, and genre-bending stories. This probably makes sense given her background as an investigative journalist who studied female serial killers after getting her MFA in Creative Writing. Before going all in on her filmmaking career, Leah was a film projectionist for ten years (a stint which included living on Block Island, RI, in the old movie house). She studied film stunts with a stunt family in Virginia. And as an investigative journalist she helped exonerate a man from prison.
