​Develop, Write and Pitch your Documentary​

If I had a penny for every time I have heard someone say ” I have an idea for a documentary, but I don’t know how to pitch it!” – I would be a rich woman and I’d be writing this from my private villa on the beach.

As it is, we are not demanding pennies from everyone who utters the obvious, but what we are doing is launching a new filmmaking course to help you define your documentary idea and prepare a professional treatment ready for pitching to a commissioning broadcaster.

Steven Ballantyne

Steven Ballantyne , Founder EPM Asia and Field Director for Disney’s “Born in China” wildlife documentary, will lead this two day intensive workshop. An industry expert in the field of production, Steven’s goal for the workshop will be to help you fine tune your documentary idea to a point where you would be able to submit your application to a local or international commissioning broadcaster. With contacts in RTHK, Al Jazeera and National Geographic, Steven is the man to help you achieve this.
