Preview: Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is

Posted on: Sunday 05 July 2020 8:28pm by Debbie Macdonald

PYMWYMI Executive Producer Debbie Macdonald reflects on what makes this session the most popular at CMC every year…

 I’ve been Exec’ing this session for many years now and its become one of the key favourites at CMC. As a former buyer myself, turned creator/writer, I’m incredibly passionate about encouraging people to get their ideas out there as early as possible. For new Creators/producers, it can be seen as a daunting process but it really doesn’t have to be. Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is unravels the mystery. The session is a unique and exciting opportunity for Producers to get their ideas in front of key decision makers in the kids’ industry, gaining invaluable feedback and advice.

This year we had an unprecedented number of entries with Producers from around the globe vying to pitch to our prestigious line-up of judges covering the international landscape. Of course the conference is more open to international delegates so I aiming our entries reflect that too.

So if you want to be a fly on the wall and witness a snapshot of the pitching process from the comfort of your own home, join us on Thursday 9 July at 4pm. This is a session you don’t want to miss! And you don’t need to queue to get in!
