We are very excited to announce that our Head of Video Production, Tim Bassford, has won the 2011 Enter The Pitch Film Competition. Following a successful online voting stage Tim had to pitch his film idea to a host of auspicious British Film professionals including multi-oscar winner Nick Park and Empire magazine editor-at-large Nev Pierce.
The project will now go into development for a shoot later in the year, ending with a trip to Hollywood to meet top producers and executives to get advice and invaluable experience.
The panel had a tough challenge on their hands this year with an outstanding set of finalists, who had developed very good stories. Many congratulations to all ten finalists and especially the runners up Jodi De Souza (Humble Beginnings) and Carolyn Goodyear (Machaerus).
Luke Walton, the Executive Producer of The Pitch, said: ‘This year the top ten all had fantastic ideas and really tempting projects which should definitely go forward, it made the judges job a very difficult one.’
‘Tim Bassford is definitely a talent to watch for the future. His take on Samson is a contemporary and sexy thriller and I am really looking forward to developing the project this year.’
‘He shows just how enduring the human stories in the Bible are when they are retold for new generation.’
Spinning Clock prides itself on innovative and creative video production and this prize just goes to show our team are passionate about film both in and out of work.
