Spy Hop’s award winning year-long film class is the next step in your creative and technical film pursuits.
2013 PitchNic will begin in October 2013. Watch for applications in Summer 2013.
Spend a year with 5 other passionate, experienced, creative teens to write, shoot and edit a 20 minute film.
Broken into two groups, documentary and narrative, each student spends time working on story ideas and then pitches them to a panel of film professionals. The winning six pitches advance to the final round and are narrowed down to four final films by the class. Each film is created by a team of three; a director, producer and cinematographer. The rest of the class is spent learning first-hand how to create a professional-caliber film.
PitchNic films have screened at over 30 festivals internationally, including the Sundance Film Festival, Los Angeles International Film Festival, Westport Youth Film Festival, and CineYouth Film Festival.
“The youth produced films you will see at PitchNic are original, authentic, illuminating and inspiring. Anyone who cares about film, is a member of the industry or has a teenage child should come. It is an invitation for conversation, inspiration and look at what is possible when young people come together to collaborate and narrate their future” - Geralyn Dreyfous, Founder of the Utah Film Center and Impact Partners, and longtime supporter of Spy Hop Productions.
