I just got word that I am one of fifteen image makers who will be competing for a $30,000 contract offered by the Knowledge Network (KN). The KN, B.C.'s Public Broadcaster, is looking for ten 2-3 minute short films created from still imagery that will historically present the Nelson and wider Kootenay region. Whether I sink or swim at the pitch session in June I'll be sure to write a follow up here soon.
(UPDATE 08/08/2013. Well I didn't walk away with the $30,000 contract this time, but I did learn a tonne about pitching a project to a television network. A truly gruelling and educational weekend. Thanks to all the filmmakers and network folks that were involved. And a big congratulations to winner Amy Bohigan of Watershed Productions.)
