ED IS ONE STEP NEARER TO HOLLYWOOD!

Bath College Creative Media Production course leader  is one step nearer to Hollywood as he’s been shortlisted for the international film competition ‘The Pitch’.

 

Ed, pitched his short film idea, ‘Clay’ and has successfully made it through to the finals. Along with nine industry professionals he attended a residential course in the Lake District last week then will go on to pitch his story idea at Pinewood Studios in the New Year.

 

The overall winner will receive a unique opportunity to have their film made with production support and a budget of £30K.  The winner will go to Hollywood, meet Ralph Winter, producer of X-men and Fantastic Four, and host of other industry professionals who will give feedback on the completed film.

 

Ed, a Lecturer in Media Production at Bath College said: “I’ve entered the competition a few times, but never got this far before so I’ve learnt a few things along the way.  In fact this year’s pitch was inspired from last year’s pitch that needed development.  When I reflect I would say there are a few themes I am dealing with such as masculinity, parenting and death.

 

Looking forward to the course Ed said, “If it’s anything like the masterclass we had with Laurie Hutzler at the Watershed last month then it’s going to be hugely beneficial.  As a father of 2 young kids finding time to think through your ideas and concepts is hard work so to have 3 days and exclusive access time to industry professional such as David Baboulene, Jackie Sheppard and Luke is going to be so invaluable.”

 

Luke Walton, the project’s director says:  “2018 has seen a leap in the number, variety and quality of pitches submitted to us for funding, and Ed should feel proud to have reached this stage. This is talent that deserves investment and that is why we offer them development through this residential course. David Baboulene has made extensive study of how story telling works in film and this course will be a prize in and of its self.”
