The SDA nationwide pitching competition will send one candidate from each state to take part in ‘The SDA Pitch’ at SPAA Fringe in Sydney.
Six filmmakers from across the country will pitch their projects directly to industry executives who will provide feedback and their card if they decide they’d like to hear more.
Finalists will be selected from a series of pitch workshops staged by each of the six state Resource Centres that make up the SDA and will be flown to Sydney.
Entrants may pitch any genre, form and duration from TV series and features to shorts, animation and multi-platform content. A ‘Wild Card’ component to the session will be allowed, time permitting.
This year the prize package includes:
* SPAA Conference 09 registration
* $1800 cash prize from SDA (and $200 for a 'Wild Card')
* Software and post production package from Azure Productions including a full copy of the new Final Draft 8 Scriptwriting Software valued at $329, a copy of your short film project output on DigiBeta tape, 50 DVD copies of your project in DVD cases with full colour printing
