We are officially launching ‘The Pinewood Pitching Competition’ a competition that will offer one lucky Indie a studio prize package worth over £30k to bring their format to life.
Applications are now open for programme makers to submit their idea for a studio based format, with the best five invited to pitch to a panel of channel controllers live at the Festival, which runs between Thursday 23rd August and Friday 25th August.
The winner will then be given an amazing opportunity to shoot a mini pilot for their programme at Pinewood Studios!
The prize will cover use of one of Pinewood’s 9,000sq ftTV studios, with a brand new, state of the art HD gallery plus production facilities and access to Pinewood’s award winning post production department. Most importantly, the winners will work with Pinewood’s dedicated and experienced TV team, who will be on hand to share their experience and work with the winners to help ensure their vision is translated into a successful end product.
Advisory Chair of the Festival, Kenton Allen comments: “In these straitened times this is a unique, opportunity to take the paper format you passionately believe in and breathe life into it. You would have to be either mad or a millionaire not to enter.”
