The Big Pitch is a dynamic competition where the UK’s most talented, up and coming filmmakers pitch their film ideas to win the largest feature film production prize in the UK.
Who wins? You decide.
On Saturday December 6th in front of a live voting audience the four finalists pitched to win the largest production prize in the UK. All four teams entertained the voting audience in a 2 hour show full of thrills.
After the live audience votes and online votes were collated it was announced that there were literally just a few votes separating first and second place. Second place went to Derek Boyes' neo-noir thriller Blackout but the winners of The Big Pitch 08/09 with their psychological thriller Different Shades of Graham are Keith Lynch, David Lynch, Brad Watson and Simon Thomas.
Different Shades of Graham will be produced during 2009 and premiere at the Northern Lights Film Festival 2009.
Congratulations to Different Shades of Graham, commiserations to the three finalists and thank you to everyone who voted and made this competition so exciting.
Everyone who registered before November 28th was entered into a prize draw to win tickets for The Big Pitch Final. The exciting draw was held here at Moxie Towers and Wema Qayoumi of Essex was pulled out of the hat.
Wema will be at The Big Pitch Final and voting for her favourite project.
