Hey New York, get your web video project pitches ready—we’re following up the highly-popular Tubefilter Pitch Camp at Digital Hollywood Content Summit in Los Angeles last month, with a whole new one on November 10th at Digital Hollywood New York.
We had four impressive web series pitches step up with their best 5-minute presentations to our four panelists before getting some tough questions and priceless advice about how to polish their pitches. Now that we’re in New York, we’re taking a more brand and advertiser focus, hearing from content executives that both receive and give pitches every day, like CJP Digital’s Wilson Cleveland and Digitas’ Paul Kontonis.
We’re looking for a variety of projects—some that are already produced and looking to take it to the next level, and others that are just in the early stages. They can be scripted, non-scripted, game-based or even elaborate ARGs that span across all platforms. We’ll select 3-5 of the more interesting concepts and invite them to give 5-minute presentation pitches live on stage in front of the panel of top digital executives.
Keynoting the opening day at the Content Summit in NYC will be Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales, meaning you’ll want to get there early for the morning session. The Tubefilter Pitch Camp session will start at 1:15 PM and is a must even if you aren’t pitching your series.
Digital Hollywood Content Summit New York: November 10-12
Location: Lighthouse Conference Center
111 E 59th St. (59th St. and Lexington Ave.)
New York NY 10022
The Pitch Camp panelists:
What we’re looking for:
1. Originality — let’s not rehash failed TV pilots, but instead let’s see something new. Originality is always a good thing.
2. Marketing Plan — make sure to think about not only the concept, but how you plan on reaching your audience.
3. Use of the Internet as a medium — Think about why your project is made for the web. If it’s multi-platform, think about how to harness the internet’s unique strengths.
4. Fit for Brands — since we’re in New York this time, we’re taking a deeper look at content that’s fit for major brands to come on board to support.
**DEADLINE for submissions is Friday, November 5 at 5:00 PM (PT)**
