SINGAPORE — After a landmark deal signed at the Asia TV Forum & Market last year, where, in partnership with Perfect World Pictures (Singapore), a new pitching platform has been launched calling for innovative concepts for new and original scripts for the development of a theatrical (traditional) movie (Pitch 1), an online movie (Pitch 2), and an online drama series (Pitch 3).
This is in addition to ATF’s already successful Formats Pitch and Animation Pitch, both of which have garnered real results for the winners; one of whom is William Lim, Executive Producer at XTREME Media and winner of the inaugural ATF Formats Pitch competition in 2016, whose winning format, Hit It, was commissioned by Mediacorp Suria for 2018.
ATF’s Group Project Director Yeow Hui Leng said, “As the leading gateway into Asia, each edition of ATF offers new content from and for the region and beyond. Nurturing Asian talent is top of mind for us, and we feel very privileged to have Perfect World Pictures join hands with us for another quality platform that will allow Asian content creators to put forth their best ideas and concepts to fruition in China.”
The ATF Chinese Pitch 2018 is touted as the premier Chinese pitching competition for creators and producers. An inaugural event by the Asia TV Forum & Market (ATF, December 4-7, 2018), sponsored by Perfect World Pictures (Singapore), this platform will serve to showcase the Asia’s verve and expose ideas for export and development in all Chinese-speaking territories.
The prize consists of an opportunity to have his/her script bought, collaborated on or have 3rd -party investors to greenlight the project. For those offered a straight up buyout (IP Rights), an amount of S$15,000 will be offered.
