“Speed Pitching” for the students from the UMA
They will present projects / ideas / audiovisual formats for millenials in which Ultra High Definition (UHD) will provide an add value. Currently, the need for Ultra High Definition (UHD) content is a demand of the audiovisual market worldwide.
In addition, producers of traditional content seek to reach young people with new products,as they have have stopped consuming conventional television audiovisual products. But, at the same time, young people spend more and more time consuming audiovisual content through other devices (mobile phones and tablets, especially).
Content producers are desperately searching for fresh ideas, projects and formats that can meet the consumption needs of the young people.
Speed Pitching for Entrepreneurs
In the case of entrepreneurs / independent professionals, the 4KSummit’s pitch session is an opportunity for professionals and independent entrepreneurs to present their ideas of programs / formats / series to content managers and professional producers that can help them make their dreams come true These are projects in an embryonic phase, but developed, in which the candidates need a business guide from start to finish to carry out their project.
The projects must be aimed at millenials and designed to be produced in UHD. The idea is that candidates can join a production company to be part of the team that develops it, and participate in its production and realization, but under the structure of a consolidated company that bets on their project.
Like in previous years, the pitch jury will be composed of CEOs, senior executives, consultants, investors and mentors.
