SHORT FILM PROJECT PITCH
You will have 5 minutes to pitch an idea for a collaborative short film. Prepare an enthusiastic and engaging presentation of an idea for a film you would like to work on. Follow the checklist of points to cover in your pitch. Please keep your pitch under 5 minutes. Your pitch must offer an idea that is realistic within the timeline, technical tools, and financial limitations of our class. Films can be shot in multiple locations, but be realistic about the time it takes to plan and shoot.
