You’ve just had a great idea for a show!  Well, at least you and your best friend think it’s great! But how do you really know if it’s any good?  And how do you turn that light bulb moment into a global kids’ brand?  These are just some of the Big Questions we’ll be looking at in this lively, hands-on workshop, suitable for writers, animators, producers and budding creators of all levels of experience working on concepts for all age ranges (toddlers to teens).  Hosted by ‘Mike the Knight’ creator Alexander Bar, and a panel of industry experts, Polish and Pitch will offer valuable first hand insights to help you assess and craft your ideas, navigate the many perils of the pitching process and identify strategies to find the right partners for your project and secure that all elusive green light!  In a before-and-after Pitch Process, a handful of volunteers will be invited to pitch their own ideas for constructive appraisal of presentation and content.  Participants will then work on their projects and undergo pitch training with development experts, before re-pitching in a new and improved way!  This workshop is about providing a friendly, fun atmosphere in which to hone the skills and techniques that will help make your projects, and how you present them, better.  You can of course attend without a project and join one of the development groups to experience advice and guidance by participating in the group and observing the pitch process.
