On Screen Manitoba chose its winner of the Rogers $10,000 Pitch late Friday at the Gimli Film Festival.
Quinn Greene won the big award for his project “Brad Even Paler”
Greene was crowned the winner after delivering a three-minute pitch to a panel of industry professionals and a packed house at the Gimli Theatre.
“I feel amazing, it was a lot of hard work to get here, I can’t even describe it,” Greene said in a statement. “It’s amazing! I’m so excited to start working.”
“Brad Even Paler” is a six-episode comedic horror web series about Bradley Tepid, an agoraphobic geek who lives a simple life of avoiding responsibility and beating his own Mario Brothers High Scores — until an accident leaves him with a rare disease of Vampirism. Not only is Brad still the same lazy, sickly loser he always was, now he’ll stay that way forever.
Seven finalists also pitched their works.
