"Nullpunkt" from Estonia – the winners of the Filmteractive Market
"Nullpunkt" is a transmedia storytelling project, involving several mediums and several activities, which give the audience the opportunity to immerse into the storyworld and be part of it. Audiences have multiple entry points to the story – the book, the film, casting for the film, the production blog with an alternative narrative, the alternate reality game, the book-crossing activities, theme song writing contest, TV series and many more. One can enter the storyworld starting from any entry point, with the story still being easy to understand and to follow.

Pitching Guidelines - Get prepared for Filmteractive Market!
Filmteractive Market is coming. There are only a few days left until the 26th September, when the authors of the top 8 out of 35 submitted projects will pitch live in front of the Filmteractive audience.
But what actually is pitching? And how to prepare yourself for it? Here are the pitching guidelines!
1. Begin your pitch by introducing yourself and listing your qualifications, such as whether you’ve been optioned, sold, produced and/or if you've won or placed well in any competitions or contests. If you haven’t won a contest, or don't have any such credentials, just say you're a "new author." People, in general, can be very hopeful about things that are "new"!
2. Name the log line of your project. It is a brief summary of your project (one or two sentences) often providing both a synopsis of the plot or general idea, and an emotional "hook" to stimulate interest. Contrary to what some people might think, a logline is not a marketing slogan, but is actually a one sentence description of your project.
3. Name the title of your project.
4. Next, include a part that places your project in context by naming its genre and comparing it to a recent commercially successful projects that is similar to yours in its content and/or tone.
5. Now it's time to talk about your project. Here, keep things short and sweet by conveying the key elements of your project as clearly and as concisely as possible. Introduce the main idea, the functions, the technology you are using etc. Don’t forget about the visual elements of your presentation. Prepare a Power Point presentation, a set of photos or footage.
But don’t say everything, tease the audience, leave them wanting more! If they ask for more, answer their questions!
6. In the last part explain why you think your project will have market appeal. Why is your project different from other projects in its genre. Talk about your unique approach.
7. If you have got some time left talk about your inspiration. Tell them what got you interested. Good luck!
