What is it and how to do it!!!!!
This is where it all begins…don’t miss your chance to be part of this exciting industry event!
Ever watched a movie, TV programm, or been on the net and thought, I’ve got a better idea than that!
A good idea for a film, TV/website series or an advertisement, can come from anywhere!
But what do you do next when you have those great ideas?..... You MUST have the ability to pitch it to the people who matter, THE PRODUCERS.
Refining and defining a pitch is a process of discovering the potential and the heart of your idea and conveying it to others in a concise and exciting way - within an allotted time frame!
If you have an idea, or would like to get your creative juices flowing, come and talk to the insiders – they’ll let you in on how it’s done. Discuss new ideas, and how stories, films and TV series are developed.
