Cross-platform and transmedia concepts/ stories are now established in the mainstream, this pitching competition, held at BAFTA on the 5th December, puts those with grassroots crossplatform stories in direct contact with those who can commission, fund or produce them.
HOW IT WORKS?
– 100 word summary of the story. Think of this as your main pitch.
– A concise run-through of the platforms/mediums you propose to use, with a sentence to contextualise each (i.e. why this medium and for what element of story)
– A sentence or two to sum up the scale, i.e how long will your story run for, how many people do you expect it to reach.
– The Business. Any thoughts you have on target markets, revenue streams, co-productions, partnerships, etc.
There is a small £5 charge for each submission. You can submit more than one idea, but to keep things fair, you’ll need to pay the fee for each idea. The deadline for entries is 15th November.
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
The top 5 ideas will be picked out and those lucky winners gathered at BAFTA on the 5th December to pitch to an expert panel.
The panel will judge the winning pitch, and the winner will benefit from a follow-up meeting with an expert who can help signpost the next stages. For any of the pitches in the spotlight there’s always the chance to find collaborations amongst the industry audience or even further meetings with panelist commissioners – it’s happened before at Pitch Up!
