PITCH SAMPLE: ANIMATED INFOGRAPHIC FOR KIDS
Before the business became busy, there were pitches.
Lots of pitches.
It comes with being an entrepreneur, and you need to be good at presenting your ideas. I landed work with the Ontario Institute for Regenerative Medicine because I pitched them. Work with Scientific American came about because I reached out to them. In this business you don’t wait to see a ‘want ad.’
You pitch people.
And, if you hit them up at the right time and it’s a good fit, you may get a little work out of it.
This represents one of those that wasn’t meant to be. Aimed at a children’s science organization, this silent animation represents the animated portion of a fully interactive video. Kids would be able to click around and reveal information as they wanted/needed it. It required re-visiting different kinds of software to enable interactivity and, in the end, opened my eyes to potentially new markets.
Even when you lose, you win.
And, I still think the idea’s kinda cool!
