Have you got a great idea for a movie?

This is it! Your chance to pitch your movie idea directly to a panel of film executives. These are the people who matter. They are the people who buy scripts – they are the people who decide what will be made and what won’t.

To pitch, just drop a fiver in the hat, and the floor is yours. You have two minutes to convince the panelists your script is great, and maybe to read it. They can and will gong you off if you are boring.

Improve your pitching skills and get instant feedback. Some pitches have gone into production; these include Meet The Parents (1994), 51st State (1995), Siamese Cop (1996) and White Bhaji (2001).

Book your seat quickly in order to ensure entry, the last Live!Ammo! was completely packed.

Last night was a wonderful opportunity to be on the 'business end' of the 'Raindance sawn off shotgun' of Live Ammunition with 31 rounds of Ammo being shot at the panel last night! Elliot I can't thank you enough for dragging me in, I thoroughly enjoyed it!
- Tom Knight, Actor & Producer
