Pitch Idol in Northern Ireland
Pitching is always - and rightly - considered as a tricky operation. The ability to sell an idea as complex as a film narrative in two minutes is a handy one - although having the opportunity to pitch to the right person is equally as important. Amongst the upcoming writer events, Screenplay Europe noted that Northern Ireland's Screenwriters Ink is hosting Pitch Idol in Belfast on May 3. The title might be silly, but it's never a bad idea to confront your ideas with some seasoned but hopefully supportive professionals. And we also believe in writers getting out of the house a bit more often! And as they say on the site of the Northern Ireland Film and TV Commission, "this could be the start of a beautiful friendship!"
