Less is More

This is the philosophy I'm trying to force myself to adapt in my writing, and more importantly in my pitching. Clearly I'm a rambler, so I will have to force myself to bit my tongue.

My big question is - should I give away the ending of the story? Or just leave them hanging?

In the spirit of less is more (and because I haven't had any coffee yet) that is all I have to say at the moment.

  1. I subscribe to the philosophy that a good pitch will leave them wanting more, so I wouldn't give it all away.

    That being said, every project's different, and I've never pitched a short film before.

    What I'd suggest doing is write both versions, and then pitch both to people and see which one works better for them.
