I am writing a screenplay based on a biography of WWII pilot. It's basically my first attempt at a full length project.

I know with non fiction books, you can pitch the idea before the work is finished. Does it work that way with screenplays?

Short answer: yes. More so, even. I just went to a weekend pitchfest in LA where one of the producers was pleasantly surprised to find out the script was done after I pitched it...

BUT

It's dangerous if you haven't finished a feature length screenplay before, because if they DO want it, they may want it faster than you can do it (or at least faster than you can do it RIGHT).

Thanks Jeff.  Hopefully, a short deadline will be my biggest problem!
