by Courtney · October 7, 2010 · Pitch the LAMB · 1 Comment

Several people have asked if Pitch the LAMB would be returning to The LAMB? The truth is Pitch the LAMB never left, it was merely on hiatus for August and September as to not conflict with the Hollywood Fantasy Draft/Pitch Your Movie feature that was occurring over at Anomalous Material. Similar to a fantasy sports drafts, Anomalous Material pulled together over 25 bloggers to hold a Hollywood Fantasy Draft. Each blogger played the role of a Hollywood producer picking the actors and directors they wanted to be in their films. After the draft was completed, each participant had to come up with a film pitch for the team they selected. Anomalous Material’s own Castor was gracious enough to allow Pitch the LAMB to highlight all the exceptional pitches that the draft participants came up with. In part one, of our two part coverage, we look the first 11 pitches that were submitted.

    I got to read most of these, though only commented on a few of them. Of the ones I’ve read, I’d greenlight Kai’s. It’s by far the best, most interesting, fun, and I’m damn sure I’d pay $10 to see it in the theater.
