The Television Animation Conference, held each year for industry insiders at the Ottawa International Animation Festival, is continuing its Pitch THIS! program.
Presented by 9 Story Entertainment, the event allows content creators the chance to pitch their ideas to a panel of international broadcasters. Following the five-minute pitches, panel members will share their insight and provide valuable feedback to the presenters.
The panelists will assess each pitch based on their creative, innovative and financial merits as well as their marketability and overall appeal.
Animators are encouraged to submit their ideas. To qualify for the program, proposals from animators must include the following:
- Project synopsis, including target audience, technique, format, rough budget (1-2 pages)
- One episode synopsis
- Bio 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)
TAC will be accepting proposals by email at firstname.lastname@example.org until Aug. 1.
Running Sept. 19-20, the first two days of the OIAF, TAC is a specialized industry forum designed for professionals in animation content creation, development, production, distribution and marketing. Held at the Chateau Laurier Hotel in downtown Ottawa, TAC brings together 300 key professionals for two days of panels, seminars and keynote addresses.
Networking events are also a strong component of TAC, offering many opportunities for delegates to relax, share ideas, get to know each other and speak more intimately about potential projects and developments.
