These finalists will have the opportunity to win a $5,000 CAAM award for research and development! In addition, this year CAAM will also be offering an additional fund (TBA) to the pitch project that either reaches it’s crowdfunding goal fastest or is able to fully raise the entire amount (whichever is appropriate for the situation).
2012 winner S. Leo Chiang (Out Run documentary): “‘Ready, Set, Pitch!’ gave us invaluable pitching experience at a time when producers are expected more and more to present their works-in-progress in public. We were able to use our well-honed pitch in subsequent meetings with funders and industry professionals to great success. Wonderful experience.”
