30 filmmakers say hello to each other in marathon 2 hour session
This was pretty exhausting and for me after a few minutes it was a complete blur of faces and names. But a good ice breaker.
Then in the afternoon a Pitching Workshop from the viewpoint of Distribution Companies…basically they really prefer to hear pitches from Producers. Preferably not Directors and writers don’t get a look in.
This was followed up by Market Place Live, which I had seen before and is basically a role play dramatisation of the production of a fictionalised film…if that makes sense. It’s enjoyable, funny and highly informative.
