PROJECT PITCH FOR MEC'S INVOLVEMENT AS PARTNER IN 5 PART DOCUMENTARY SERIES
My name is Levi and I am the Director and Filmmaker behind Untethered.
In the following months I am working with a team to produce an incredible series of Micro Documentaries, tentatively titled, "The Slacklife BC Web Series."
These short films will be featuring the adventures and rigging projects of the best slackliners in Canada with guest appearances from the best athletes in the sport from around the world.
We will be making five short films that will be released in a web series available starting in January. This series will be a continuation of the best slackline content available in the world. It will feature the best athletes in the sport, while documenting some of their incredible rigging missions. Select episodes from this series will be featured in film festivals around the globe. This series will have a wide appeal to young adults as well as people of all ages who love the outdoors and are looking for inspiration for their own adventures.
The goal of this series is to help promote human powered adventures of all types.
I have extensive experience with brand integration in adventure based content. I've worked for the biggest biking website in the world, shot alongside various Redbull Media House productions, and also had my content featured on the likes of Discovery Channel and Nat Geo Adventure.
I personally am reaching out to you and preparing this pitch specifically for MEC's involvement. I believe our partnership on this project would be immensely beneficial for both the brand and outreach of MEC, and also for empowering us to tell and live the best stories we can.
In the following pitch I have outlined:
- Our previous success with Untethered
- Our plan for this series
- Additional peripheral content for the series
- Why we would be a great fit
- What we would create for MEC specifically
- Our Production Team
- Our Distribution Strategy
THIS NEW SERIES WILL BUILD UPON AND GO even DEEPER FROM WHERE UNTETHERED LEFT OFF.
