Elevator Pitch – Get Your Indie Project Featured in the Feb Issue of the Geek Syndicate Digital Magazine

At the moment the GS team is working hard to put together issue five of the Geek Syndicate Magazine  and if you’re an indie creator who would like to get your project featured in the magazine then we would like to hear from you.

How this will work is this: in the Geek Syndicate Magazine we have a section called ‘Elevator Pitch’ where creators pitch their indie titles to the world. All we ask for are:

  1. The details of the indie project.
  2. Where people can get hold of it.
  3. Get the creator(s) to answer a simple few questions as part of their pitch. The questions are What is your comic/ film/book/etc?  and Why Should We Pick This Up? In the tradition of the classic elevator pitch, we ask for the answers to be short and sweet.
  4. The creator(s)  also has the option or sending a  preview of their project which we will run alongside their pitch. This can be four to five pages of art, an audio drama sample, a prose chapter or a film trailer we leave that up to you.

We choose four of the pitches sent to be be included in the Geek Syndicate Magazine which is out at the beginning of February.

If you’re interested in taking part, get in touch with us at [email protected]. Please note that we will be taking submissions up to 19th January or until we have our four pitches.

Below is an example Elevator Pitch to get you started:

The Scarifyers Elevator Pitch

What is The Scarifyers?
The Ghostbusters… in tweed. Adapted from the BBC Radio 4 Extra series, The Scarifyers is a rip-roaring tale of comedic supernatural intrigue set in 1930s Britain, distilling the likes of Dick Barton, The Devil Rides Out and Quatermass into a cracking new adventure.

Why Should We Pick This Up?
Forbidden Planet International Blog: “Executed with style, expertly written, full of great characters, sparkling dialogue, and some quite magnificent artwork… I loved it.”
Comics Bulletin: “A very British mix of class satire, supernatural drama, secret societies and clever dialogue, combined with some nicely creative art.”
Comic Bits Online: “The UKs “edgier” counterparts of Blake & Mortimer… oozes Britishness and I can only recommend this highly.”
Shiny Shelf: “A Wheatley-esque period horror adventure story with a pleasingly light, humorous touch… Seek it out.”
Mass Movement Magazine: “One of the strongest opening chapters that it’s been my pleasure to read in more than three decades of comic devotion.”
