Showroom Cinema 4

Have you ever wanted to know what makes a buyer jump up and down with excitement?  Then this session is a MUST for you. 

CMC’s popular bidding war is back again for its 7th year and it promises to be even bigger and better than ever before. Not only do we have 5 brand new fabulous pitches for you to see, we have a new team of hungry judges who are excited to see what our Producers have to offer this year.  

Our Producers will bravely take centre-stage hoping to impress the industry big wigs and you…. the CMC audience! And if that’s not enough pressure, they will only have 5 minutes to make an impact, seal the deal and take their money.  

Yes, our esteemed judges have money to spend ……which is exciting in itself….and they’re looking for the next big thing in kids TV. 

Amongst our line up of judges this year we have the co-founder of ASOS and the creator of the multi award winning ‘Bing Bunny’.  All our judges have either commissioned or produced for all the major networks so you really won’t want to miss this.  Not only will you be given a close up insight into what grabs their attention and why, you’ll hear first hand the questions that potential investors want answered.

This exciting session will reveal, close up, the merry dance between buyer and producer and condenses several months of negotiations into a tense, fun filled, 5 mins.

New pitches, new judges and… a new host. Yes, this year we have the fabulous Biren Ghose (Country Head of India for Technicolor)  who will be making things move with a swing.

So, if you want to witness what normally only happens behind closed doors… or a packed bar at 1am, (yes…. I used to be a Commissioner…) then come and join us in Showroom Cinema 4 at 2pm on Wednesday. 

You really don’t want to miss this.
