The Ottawa International Animation Festival’s industry event TAC is now accepting proposals for its 2011 Pitch THIS! Program, presented by 9 Story Entertainment. This year’s event will be held at the Fairmont Château Laurier on September 21 and 22, the first two days of the Festival.
"Nothing beats pitching to industry execs in front of hundreds of people to bring the potential of your project quickly into focus! For us it was the confidence boost we needed to go after the opportunities that arose from attending TAC." - Warren Brown, Producer of BIGBOX SINGSONG (Pitch THIS! 2009)
Pitch THIS! gives two producers the opportunity to steal everybody’s attention by revealing their new project to everyone in the TAC audience, which includes over 350 potential buyers, financiers, partners and industry leaders. Two of the most promising ideas will be selected by the TAC committee for a chance to WOW the conference’s panel of broadcasters and industry leaders for 10 minutes. Both producers and audience members alike will receive valuable feedback from a panel of broadcasters.
Do you have what it takes? TAC will be accepting proposals by email ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) or snail mail until Monday, August 1st, 2011. (Note: TAC will accept no more than 2 submissions per production company. Selected proposals will receive one complimentary TAC Pass.)
Here are the proposal requirements:
- Project synopsis, including target audience, technique, format, rough budget, (1-2 pages)
- One episode synopsis
- Bios of key executives
- Short paragraph indicating your current stage of development and any additional information (i.e. interactive components, merchandise, etc.)
- Concept art (2 or 3 images)
