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 »

I’ll be in the audience tomorrow at Power to the Pixel’s joint event with IFP, the Cross-Media Forum. The entire transmedia conference will be streamed live here, so tune in between the hours of 9am and 5pm if you’d like to attend virtually (the schedule can be found here).

If you can’t make it to New York, you can watch events unfold right here from the comfort of your own chair from 09.00 – 17.00 EST.”

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 »
