During the workshop participants will learn the basics of creating effective and persuasive pitches for their projects.

Following the success of last year’s edition, the ShorTS Pitching Training will take place in an online format once again. The participants with the 5 selected projects will participate in 3 days of workshops, comprising of individual and group lessons with the tutor Jérôme Nunes of NISI MASA. The classes will be held in English and the detailed programme for the three days will be provided to participants after registration closes, but will include:

– time in individual sessions focused on the project presented by the individual participants, creating an opportunity for analysis and discussion of the presented project and to exchange opinions on it
– time in individual sessions focussed on the pitch, in order to learn the basics of creating effective pitches and to work on your own project
– time in the group sessions for all participants and the tutor to discuss the projects together

At the end of the workshop, participants will have to create an additional 5-minute video-pitch in which they will put into practice what they learned during the two-day workshop. The projects will then be presented to a small circle of producers.
