Metro Screen’s SPAA Fringe pitching competition held last night 28 Sep saw 10 unique projects pitched in front of seven industry leaders and a capacity audience.
The judges were so overwhelmed by the talent in the room and the ability for the projects to ‘just sell themselves’ one audience member was overheard to say, that they awarded two highly commended on top of the three prize categories.
The project now representing Metro Screen at the national pitching competition at SPAA Fringe and one step closer to Cannes is:
Roy Weiland with ‘Barton the Ghost Catcher’ – Children’s transmedia project
2nd place – Julie Noever with ‘The Kingdom’ – Feature documentary
3rd place – Maria Tran with ‘Quest for Jackie Chan’ – Feature documentary
Highly commended – Rick Viede with ‘All the Way with Glace’ – Transmedia project AND Brianna O’Donohue with ‘Godsville’ – Animated television sitcom
