The Ottawa International Animation Festival’s industry event TAC is accepting proposals for its 2011 Pitch THIS! Program, presented by 9 Story Entertainment. This year’s event will be held at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier on Sept. 21 and 22, the first two days of the festival.
Pitch THIS! gives two producers the opportunity to steal everybody’s attention by revealing their new project to everyone in the TAC audience, which includes more than 350 potential buyers, financiers, partners and industry leaders. Two of the most promising ideas will be selected by the TAC committee for a chance to wow the conference’s panel of broadcasters and industry leaders for 10 minutes. Both producers and audience members will receive valuable feedback from a panel of broadcasters.
TAC is accepting proposals by email ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) or snail mail until Monday, Aug. 1. TAC will accept no more than 2 submissions per production company. Selected proposals will receive one complimentary TAC Pass.
Here are the proposal requirements:
- Project synopsis, including target audience, technique, format, rough budget, (1-2 pages)
- One episode synopsis
- Bios of key executives
- Short paragraph indicating your current stage of development and any additional information (i.e. interactive components, merchandise, etc.)
- Concept art (2 or 3 images)
