Pitch THIS!


TAC (The Animation Conference), part of the OIAF(Ottawa International Film Festival), is pleased to announce the return of its Pitch THIS! programme, presented by 9 Story Entertainment.

Pitch THIS! allows content creators the opportunity to pitch their project ideas to a panel of international broadcasters. Following the five-minute pitches, panel members will share their insight and provide valuable feedback to the presenters.

TAC is a specialised industry conference for animation professionals including content creators, developers, producers, distributors, and marketers.

The conference brings together key players from North America and international markets to provide a forum for active networking, practical information exchange, and trade in a comfortable and intimate environment.

Panelists will assess each pitch based on their creative, innovative and financial merits as well as their marketability and overall appeal.

Animators are encouraged to submit their ideas. To qualify for the programme, proposals from animators must include the following:

  • Project synopsis, including target audience, technique, format, rough budget (1-2 pages)
  • One episode synopsis
  • Bio of key executives
  • Short paragraph indicating your current stage of development and any additional information (i.e. interactive components, merchandise, etc.)
  • Concept art (2 or 3 images)

TAC will be accepting proposal by email (tac@animationfestival.ca) until 1 July 2013.

NEW FOR 2013: The two selected proposals will each win three nights of accommodation (value $600 each) during the event, plus one complimentary all access TAC Anima pass (value $540 each) per proposal.

Now celebrating its 10th year, TAC has become North America’s preeminent animation industry conference. TAC 2013 takes place September 18-20 in Ottawa.
