Have you got a brilliant idea that you would like to pitch as a TV series, documentary, a short film or podcast?

This session will explore the ways in which content creators can put their best ideas forward in a pitch that makes a production company sit up. You will get an insight into how key relationships are made, who the key people are to seek out at a production company and how you can show your added value in your pitches.
