What's a pitch treatment?
As audience members, we get to enjoy films and shows as finished products. We see the story and it's world as one and the same. But really there are so many visual directions a script can adopt depending on a particular director's vision and the work of the production department. That's where "pitch treatments" come in.
See, directors and writers need to audition for jobs, just like actors. When they go before scowling, number-crunching studio heads, they need more than just flowery language. They have to provide powerful visual presentations to concretely establish how their prosaic descriptions will translate into cinematic dynamite.
A pitch treatment (also referred to as a "film treatment" or just "treatment") is a kind of selling document, which outlines the characters and story of a proposed script or project. It helps establish the tone, colors, themes, and world of a film or television show before production begins.
