REMINDER: Pitch the LAMB

by Courtney · March 15, 2010 · Pitch the LAMB · 3 Comments

Hello, CS of Big Thoughts From A Small Mind here to remind you all about the March edition of Pitch the LAMB

Helpful Tips: Do not over think it. Keep your pitch simple and have fun with it. If you are stuck on what to write, take three or four items from the words/phrases list and try to weave them into a sentence. If you are still stuck, try coming up with a a random title for the film. As we have seen with Hot Tub Time Machine and Snakes on a Plane, sometimes the film will write itself given the proper title. Remember the “pitch” can be as long or as short as you like. If you only come up with four or five lines, still submit it! Chances are good that it will still be more creative than some the films being released these days.

Movie Genre: Coming-of-Age

Examples of the Genre: The Graduate, Zombieland, Almost Famous, The Goonies, Big, Heavenly Creatures, Rushmore, Sixteen Candles, Stand By Me, An Education, Ghost World, To Sir With Love, Y tu mamá también, But I’m A Cheerleader, Dazed and Confused

10 words/phrases to get you started:

  1. Working 
  2. He’s going to kill you… 
  3. Loner 
  4. She does not know I am alive…
  5. Hey Frankie…
  6. Kissed
  7. Do not tell Dad…
  8. Virginity
  9. You did what?
  10. Grounded
As always, your job is to come up with an idea for a film using some of the words/phrases listed above. Once you have a plot idea, post it on your blog in any fashion you choose (e.g. plot synopsis, excerpt of a script, fictional trailer, fictional film review, movie poster, etc.) and email the link to bigthoughtssmallmind@hotmail.com. Simple as that! The deadline for submissions is Tuesday March 30, 2010.
