|Cartoon Forum - in Toulouse this September|
Cartoon Forum is the place to pitch your animated TV series. If you've got an idea for the next Wombles, or Teletubbies, or Magic Roundabout - this is the place to do it.
Cartoon Forum is the TV cousin of Cartoon Movie, the March pitch-fest in Lyon where film-makers and animators get to pitch ideas for feature films to assorted co-producers, distributors, broadcasters, financiers and sales agents.
The big difference between the two is that, at Cartoon Movie, you can pitch in concept, meaning that you are basically selling an idea. You don't need a script - or even any animation (though it helps). At Cartoon Forum, you must be in development, which means you will need at the very least some polished animation and a "bible" to show what your project will look like.
So, with that in mind, what can you submit? The answer is: A TV series, a TV special, or a "transmedia project" in development.
If your project gets selected, you get to pitch it to around 800 animation professionals at Cartoon Forum.
Here's how to submit your project:
- Check out the application documents on the Cartoon website
- Download the vade-mecum (explanatory document - tells you what to do)
- Have a look at the regulations.
Tel: +32 2 242 93 43
Good luck! The deadline for submission is 23 April 2013. You have 2 weeks.
