Reality Capture Pitch - share your UK stories

Posted: 27th October 2011

Reality Capture Pitch is back for the third time this year and looking for inventive pitch ideas that tell the world stories about UK people and culture.

The idea is to discover British stories and innovative short factual films. They also welcome non filmmakers to pitch their stories to us and work closely with Step2RealityTV directors who will produce your idea into a short documentary. Besides shooting reports, they also encourage correspondents to ask the general public questions (Vox Pops) in relation to their documentary. Entrants will need to pitch their  ideas based on the themes on the website here (all ideas should be for a short documentary of 5-10 minutes)

If your pitch is chosen:

  • You will be awarded £750 to produce and deliver your report
  • You will become part of Metropolis correspondent network meaning you get to pitch upcoming ideas
  • Your film will feature on the Metropolis website and gain international exposure
  • You may also feature on primetime TV in the Netherlands, Belgium, Greece, Bulgaria and Nicaragua
  • You will join the Step2RealityTV collective, providing you with online exposure and industry contacts

Become a member of our free creative hub Step2CollaboTV here to update your profile and submit your pitch. You can also find examples of commissioned pitches here.
