Producer duo, Ella Wright and Alice Ross have taken out FTI’s PitchFace and will head to the SPAA Conference in Melbourne next week to represent WA at the finals of the National Pitch Competition.
Ella and Alice’s winning project, “Men Making Babies” is a one hour TV documentary which explores the extraordinary lengths two men go to, to have a child together. Ella has experience at the National Pitch Competition having previously represented WA in 2011. Alice Ross also brings an accomplished resume having recently won the ECU Best Feature Documentary Award at the WA Screen Awards for “Hunter: For the Record”.
The National Pitch Competition is presented by FTI in association with Screen Network and the Screen Producers Association of Australia (SPAA) and generously supported by FTI partners, ScreenWest, Coopers and MadFish.
The ability to deliver a strong project pitch is a vital skill for filmmakers who are required to garner support for their projects. An important aspect of the competition is the feedback provided by the judges, about the project itself and the way the pitch was delivered. In this way the event is beneficial, not only to the participants, but also to the audience. This year, the competition is open to all types of Screen Projects including TV, transmedia or feature film concepts.
The winner of the National Finals will receive $3000 in cash and one full registration to the 2014 SPAA Conference.
