I had a project selected for Power to the Pixel a few years ago and the event, which takes in London in October, was a great and educational experience. If you’re got a project that seeks to push the boundaries of a what a traditional film is — call it transmedia or interactive or cross-media — I definitely recommend checking out the submission details, which are below. Deadline is July 20 and it’s open to entries from all over the world; if selected, you pitch your project at the Pixel Pitch during the BFI London Film Festival, and the winner takes home a £6,000 ARTE Pixel Pitch Prize. There are also a few new prizes this year. More »
London-based Power to the Pixel’s annual Pixel Pitch is now open for entries. What is the Pixel Pitch? A public event wherein transmedia project creators pitch their project to a jury of financiers, producers, and decision-makers. There’s a £6,000 ($9,000) purse to be had, as well as a roundtable of valuable meetings afterward with jury members. The first Pixel Pitch took place last year, and my project 3rd Rail (with co-creator Zack Lieberman) was one of seven lucky projects to be selected for the event. While we didn’t win, the experience of pitching and taking meetings in London was an exciting, educational, wonderful experience. I highly recommend anyone with a transmedia project apply; the deadline for submissions this year is August 6. The details: More »
Despite the fact that Zack and I have been pitching and developing our transmedia project Third Rail for over a year, it was a mad rush to pull together a trailer and rehearse our presentation for yesterday’s first annual Pixel Pitch here in London.

Ultimately we went with the straightforward approach, and, in retrospect, that was probably a mistake. More »
Zack and I are excitedly headed to London this week for the Power to the Pixel Cross-Media Film Forum, which opens the Times BFI London Film Festival. There, we will be pitching our next project, Third Rail, to a very qualified jury and a sold-out audience of 200; we’re seeking funding and distribution for our ambitious (and long-time-coming) transmedia undertaking, which I’m sure you’ll hear more about here in the coming weeks. 120 applicants applied for the Pixel Pitch and we are fortunate enough to be among the seven projects selected. There are a lot of great speakers and events at the conference, so if you’re in London, head on down!
