I thought about entering the 90 second pitch category at the Stareable Fest, I guess I have a couple of questions. Like could you pitch an idea for any original series that you have and they would consider them? Also can you pitch a show with a pretty high budget but yet you can’t return back on the investment when it comes time to film?
Let me give an example, I entered a Disney XD-Maker pitch a TV show contest, they liked my pitch but yet they only gave me $1,000 and said YOU make everything. In my head it’s like this is Disney, why can’t I pitch them the show and they back up filming a legit pilot instead of me making some low budget video and of course they rejected it because they didn’t like the final product but in my head I figured they would make a legit pilot down the road and my submission video was meaningless because again they liked my pitch but not the actual first episode.
So basically if I pitch a series and HBO or whoever is judging is like we like it, but now YOU have to film everything like how Disney did, I’m screwed because I may have pitched a series I can’t really make on my own with a low budget. Because I feel the web series I currently make don’t fit the theme of the fest, but yet I have ideas for better shows it’s just I haven’t made them only have the ideas for them.
So I guess in summary, can you pitch any idea you have for a TV show and they would consider it, because THEY along with YOU have a hand in making the pilot or do THEY want YOU to film everything as promised on your own with very limited backing from them. Anyway that would really help me out once the submissions are open and thank you for your time.
