Attention Satanic Video Creators!
January 11, 2020
We have been getting a lot of questions from people who want to create some video content for The Satanic Temple TV, asking what type of content we are looking for. It has been amazing to get this level of enthusiasm, and we are excited to have so many people who want to help.
The quick answer is: Email a pitch for your idea for a video or show to firstname.lastname@example.org!
The catch is: You need to email us a detailed pitch.
To be honest, we get so many emails that if you don’t include enough detail to show us that you have a concrete idea about what you want your show to look like and how you will accomplish creating it, we simply will not be able to respond. If you email saying “I can do lots of stuff, what do you want me to do?” we will not be able to answer. If you email with a one-liner (e.g. “I want to do a show where I travel to small towns in the rural south to talk to people about Satanism!”) we will not be able to give you any feedback, because there just isn’t enough there.
What should you include in your email to make it a good, solid pitch?
- Your name and location
- The working title of your film or series
- A 1-2 sentence “elevator pitch” summarizing the project.
- A slightly longer summary description (3 paragraphs for a film, 1 paragraph per episode for a series)
- Any relevant background or experience you have in writing, direction, or creation of video content.
- A list of resources you will have available for production (including tech gear, access to people or locations, etc)
- A list of things you don’t have but would need in order to make this project a reality
We aren’t going to give you hard limits right now when it comes to content or style. We want stuff that will resonate with our audience, period. Beyond that, nothing is off the table. Come at us with a concrete vision for a show or film that is interesting and exciting. Make sure it is something you have the resources and skill to create. That is how to start the conversation, and we will see what happens from there!Tags: Creator Notes
