Our agents said “you’re crazy.”
Friends said, “don’t do it.”
The lawyer said, “I wouldn’t recommend it, but if you must…”
Well, We Must…
When we wanted to break in to Unscripted Television, Reality TV, and Documentary Specials, no one would take our calls. We had:
- great video pitches
- unique ideas
- the determination to succeed
It wasn’t enough. We still needed to convince production companies to meet with us and consider teaming up on our projects.
For most aspiring filmmakers, documentarians, and reality TV producers today, that’s still the case.
People won’t take your calls.
Starting Now, We’re Taking Your Calls
We’ve decided to try an experiment.
If you have:
- A terrific concept for a documentary series or reality TV show
- Some preliminary video shot featuring interesting characters or proving unique access to an exciting world
- A succinct write-up describing the show…
We will make ourselves available to hear your pitch.
Depending on your level of experience and skill set, and if we think we can help you sell the series, we will team up with you to try to produce your show. That’s what our entire Producing Unscripted podcast is about…making it easier for you to succeed in Unscripted Television, hopefully by teaming up with us.
If we do team up, you’ll get:
- A producer credit
- Paid to do real work on the show
- Or paid a small finder’s fee per episode if you are unable to work on the show.
There’s a few catches, but we think you’ll find them perfectly acceptable…we did, because we went through the same things when we broke in.
- You have to have a great write-up and at least some kind of tape before we can begin a conversation. An idea alone is NOT enough.
- You have to sign a submission agreement
- You have to be aware that we’re already developing many, many projects and may have something similar in development already.
Finally, you have to join our mailing list. We’ll be sending you:
- Tips, tricks, and ideas on building your career in both film and TV — useful whether or not you want to pitch to us
- Immediate news about the kinds of shows we’re looking for at any given time…so you’ll instantly know if we catch wind of a network looking for a certain kind of character or show.
Much more to come on this topic. Hope we get to work together soon!
