I think the old method of pitching is both terrible and outdated.

I think what is likely to end up happening will be a hybrid approach..a lot of people are basically pitching "to the world" now, either by making their own short and then getting buzz for it, or Kickstarting it and then that product becomes the pitch reel.

So many execs are mining the internet for the next big thing anyway, it's just as valid as a cold meeting, and you will end up having to go through it anyway to get to the next level, but it's much better once you have a concept that's already been "sold" several times or several ways, and has proven to be something people are literally willing to pay to see.

What I will say is that I do agree that pitching totally old school... will not yield the speed of response or the quality of result needed in the modern Electronic Age.

But Roberto is correct in bringing up these things now because this is part of what I see as the "Democratization of Means" which is occurring.

Of course everything stated earlier is valid. Pitches get a boost from name recognition and for sure getting success out of Kickstarter is kind of like "Winning the game in Reverse".

The bottomline is that it's worthwhile for us to start trying these things.

My point is, as always, is that I don't think this has been proven yet.

Ok, how about - It's worthwhile to try it at a "price-point" you can afford to lose?

There's always Fixed-Funding anyway... if a Pitch meets the mark.. Everybody gonna finish it.
If a Pitch falls short? Nobody has to do anything.

What I'm saying is.. don't make your first crowd-funding project a sequel to "The Avengers".
