So, I guess I won this contest of the highest rated pitch of November on Pitch Q. They didn’t alert me or anything, nor did I know I had comments, I just happened to go to the page and see my face all huge and pink on the front. So… yay for me!
I also got a note that I cannot decipher. I’ll assume it was useless.
If you go here, there is a little place that says GuestCode where you can put in the following: thx1138 This will take you to my pitch, which you can then watch and rate.
You can also mock my marginal public speaking skills and how weird the pitch of my voice is in real life versus how it sounds in my head. I mean, you don’t know that, but trust me. I will also not talk about how I blink one eye more than the other and talk about of one side of my mouth more than the other. Because, you don’t care.
Also, check out the face I’m making in the still frame.
So, I have actually had a good couple of days. I had a pitch with PitchQ. They’re a service that records your pitch and posts it online. I submitted a pitch to a specific call and got to go in and record it without paying the usual fee on the website. It was a really great experience. The guy behind the service is really cool, supportive, and open about the process. He says they accept about 2-3% of the pitches they receive, and then have about a 1% success rate.
He also said if you’ve written a zombie script, you’re in. Which reminds me that I have that zombie idea that I keep meaning to write about. It’s actually web series in my mind — but maybe I could Love Actually that thing up.
And I found out last week that I got a promotion — I’ll now be Lead AE on a full season of a reality show, which is exciting. It won’t start until February, but it’s a decent raise, and an excellent job. I’ll even get to edit the webisodes, which I am stoked about. Because I have a strong attachment to the idea that the web is the new distribution method… as soon as it figures out how to do that.
I also watched the entire first season (so far) of Glee. Which I love. Like, I want to work on that show because it is everything I love: musical numbers, awkward high schoolers, comically over the top bad guys you love, and occasional really touching and honest moments. Also, the gayness. The only thing that would make it better would be otters.
