ABOUT THE PITCHING PROJECTS

BELLA KENT
CHARLOTTE’S DOCUMENTARY

Your $10 ticket and vote will help Charlotte get the chance to create a documentary and be the author of her own life, unpolluted by the ignorance and stigma that often comes with the association of autism.

Recently diagnosed with ASD, 15 year-old Charlotte has begun her journey to understanding herself and wants to help others do the same. Whilst many things have begun to make sense since her diagnosis, she struggles everyday constantly battling an ignorant world.

Now she finally has a chance to take ownership over her story and bring understanding to people in her life. Through observational and participatory documentary-making, Charlotte will get the chance to be the author of her own life, unpolluted by the ignorance and stigma that often comes with the association of autism.

JUDY RANKIN
BRINGING A MEMOIR TO THE STAGE

Your $10 ticket and vote will help Judy attract interest in the production of the story as a full-length movie.

In 2014, Judy and several family members released a memoir, It’s [Not] All About Liz! Now Judy’s goal is to take the memoir from book to screen. With the screenplay written, the next step is to attract interest in the production of the story as a full-length movie.

It’s [Not] All About Liz! centres on four family members separated by distance as they confront the ripple effects of a cancer diagnosis. While the scope of this memoir is one family’s battle with cancer, the premise examines relationships and how individuals respond when tested.

This story is about people – how they think, feel, respond, connect, human limitations and flexibility. It’s about communicating individual needs within the confines of a difficult situation.

JESSICA LEAMING
WEB SERIES: ‘SITTING DUCKS’

Your $10 ticket and vote will help Jessica and her team to cover the cost of application fees when submitting the series to festivals, and a cast and crew screening in celebration of completing this 4-year collaborative process.

First-time director, producer and writer of four-part web series, ‘Sitting Ducks’ (for release in 2022), Jessica began filming this project in 2018 as a way to collaborate with local creatives in the Geelong and surrounding regions.

As a passionate acting teacher/coach, Jessica wanted to create an opportunity for students by producing the series with a team of like-minded individuals to explore narrative works instead of the usual corporate work relied upon for income in the industry.

Through community fundraisers and personal investment, Jessica and her team have completed the series and now seeks funding to cover the cost of application fees when submitting the series to festivals, and a cast and crew screening in celebration of completing this 4-year collaborative process.

ELLEN FOX

Your $10 ticket and vote will help South Geelong Primary School replace an old and unsafe kiln and purchasing class sets of implements and mats.

South Geelong Primary School aims to provide students with a ceramics program by replacing an old and unsafe kiln and purchasing class sets of implements and mats. While fundraising hard, these uncertain times have severely impacted achieving their targets.

Despite large upfront costs and ongoing maintenance costs, South Geelong Primary School has identified other schools in the area with an interest in ongoing use and rental of their kiln.

The ceramics program will offer valuable exposure to this medium to the children of the South Geelong community, that will set an early and important foundation to fostering the next generation's interest in the arts.
