What has your company produced? For what studios or networks? Founded in 2004 as an independent film and television development company, Cinterra Pictures in 2015 expanded to become Cinterra Entertainment, a fully integrated Production and Management Company. 

Cinterra Pictures is currently in production on television series Palisades Justice (2016),  and in development on documentary Postcards From A Gypsy Moon: The Troy Newman Story as well as a feature fantasy-comedy in the vein of Bruce Almighty and a feature period Drama.

We are proud to have co-produced a number of short films including The God Chair (2015) and Out With A Bang (2015) and comedy sketches in association with Humor Endorphins and Spazzboxx including Placeba (2013) The 5th Food Group (2015), The Case (2015) and The Bad Guy (2016) which can be found on FunnyOrDie and YouTube.

Film, TV, New Media, Other? Feature Films
Budget range? Under 10M
What makes the ideal writer for your company? The ideal writer for our company is someone who excels in story structure and has a working knowledge of film history. We also love working with writers who are excited by the development process rather than frustrated by it – as we believe that we are a great incubator for story and we also want to make sure we are going to market with the best possible version of any given screenplay. We are looking for true collaborators who want a long career in the film industry.
What are your goals for the Great American PitchFest? We would love to find a unique project and/or writer(s) who are looking for a great group of experienced artists to develop projects with.
Have you had success at pitching events before? We have not yet attended a pitch event.
Do you have any GAPF success stories you can share with us from previous years? This will be our first time at GAPF – and we are very much looking forward to it!
Is there any advice you would like to offer the writers who are pitching you? Read Michael Hauge’s Selling Your Story in 60 Seconds – everything he says about pitching is 100% true :) Seriously though, we agree with his advice not to “tell us the story” rather make us connect emotionally TO the story. And have fun! This is the most fun business in the world – the best pitches we’ve heard are from writers who love the worlds they’ve created and are psyched to tell us all about it.
