As with most Pitch Festivals, it is not likely that you’ll pitch your idea in 7 minutes and have someone say, “Here’s a cheque.” Think of it as more of a chance to get some of these people to look at your work and make some new contacts in the Industry.
Many of the companies I met with requested me to mail or e-mail my script to their office. Although this sounds promising the reality is just about every production company has projects in development and it’s hard to know if they already have something similar to what we have written.
I say don’t get discouraged if they don’t make an offer or return your call. Stay positive. At the end of it all you are probably better off having someone looking at your work than letting it sit on the shelf.
