Not a single person cares and 99% of them have never even asked if it was a pen name.

But yes, whoever is paying you will need to know your real name.

Also, do not put your pseudonym and real name both on the title page, that will look ridiculous. Just use your pen name.
Did you introduce yourself in all these situations under your pen name? I've copyrighted my scripts under my real name, so I'm wondering when you have to reveal your real name.

I was thinking I'd query managers under my real name and then switch to a pen name after getting a rep.
