Ready, Steady, Pitch! topic
For Nickelodeon, we always look for kid relatable content, with compelling characters and stories that will span a number of series. In animation we typically look for 11’00 durations and are keen to hear pitches at the earliest possible stage. We love to work with creators to shape and finesse their idea to bring their vision to life.
