Many filmmakers focus on the materials needed to present to investors but neglect a key factor in getting a YES from an investor.
Regardless of the materials you share, you must ultimately create an environment in your pitch that instills a sense of trust and credibility. This is born out of a combination of your confidence, knowledge and how you carefully craft your conversations and pitch.
There are many ways to create this warm, welcoming and trustworthy environment. Below are 3 key things to keep in mind:
1-You must believe in yourself or no one else will. Period. You become a mirror and your excitement and confidence is contagious so simply by showing up and believing in yourself 1000%, you have taken a critical step in gaining an investor. It is key you push all those doubts, limiting beliefs and imposter syndrome out the door! 
2-Facts and statistics create credibility- Showing you know your industry and have connections to make this film a success allow investors to feel at ease.  Even if this is your first time making a film, there are ways to incorporate facts and stats to provide a level of comfort in your investors.
3-It is all personal- Investors are human and a personal connection and feeling of familiarity is key to building a relationship. Whether it is a common college, town, vacation spot, sports team or hobby, lean into those similarities as they will expedite the process.
