Nit's in Life's a Pitch comp

AN ANIMATED TV series starring a nit is just one of the six projects selected as finalists in this year's Life's a Pitch competition.

The competition, run by local screen industry incubator Screenworks, gives finalists the opportunity to pitch their ideas for a film or TV project to a panel of industry experts at a public pitch night being held at Byron Bay Community and Cultural Centre on October 24.

“Each year we have seen amazing results from Life's a Pitch with all finalists getting a long way further in the development of their concepts, and many of the winners going into production and being broadcast on national television,” Screenworks general manger Jill Moonie said.

The finalists are Wendy Grey with Nitboy, Anne Shepperson with Warped, Salvador Castro with One Heart Two Homes, Jane Hanckel with Children of Gaia, Mandy Rogers with The Casting Couch and Stefan Plesnik, Paul Archer and Nathan Sheehy with Buskin for Change.

On October 11 the finalists will go into pitch training to prepare for the Life's a Pitch final.

Tickets are available for people to watch and learn the art of a good pitch.
