A Masterclass in Packaging and Pitching TV Series
for emerging Producers and Writers.
supported by Screenrights Cultural Fund
Are you a screen creative or creative team from a First Nations or Diverse Cultural background with a strong concept for a TV series and a completed pilot script ready to pitch?
Do you want to know how to deliver a pitch that will get traction?
With the generous support of Screenrights, Cinespace will be delivering a program targeted at empowering and connecting budding TV creators from our communities.
Delivered as an online course by a suite of industry experts, the program will build each participant’s capacity to read the market and deliver a killer pitch.
What skills will you learn?
A checklist and explanation of the necessary agreements and pitch materials
What elements packaged together make up the perfect project
How to pitch effectively to producers, production companies, networks and agencies
An insight into how producers and market buyers think when looking at projects
What's the commitment?
Participants will need to be available to attend all webinars live on Zoom. Dates and times in February/March 2021 will be announced here shortly.
Who are you and how to apply?
Applications are open Australia-wide to producers and writers who identify as First Nations or Culturally and Linguistically Diverse.
With only 14 places available in this program, competition will be tight. Whilst applications are open to individuals, preference will be given to teams of up to 2 people (per team). You or your team must have one or more project/s on your slate that are "near market-ready" - meaning you have written a pilot episode, thought about the audience, market and have undertaken prior development work (including mapping out the first season of your show).
Cinespace recognises intersectionality and we encourage applications from people in our targeted communities who may also be living with a disability. Participants will be selected by a culturally diverse panel.
What if your not quite ready to pitch to industry yet?
Screenrights Cultural Fund and Cinespace are all about accessibility and we want to make sure everyone can benefit from this rare opportunity.
A free educational online toolkit outlining the key learning from the webinar series (including a template graphical pitch deck) will be produced and distributed to all who register for new Cinespace's mailing list.
